Housing — in particular its location — is the primary mechanism for accessing opportunity in our society. Housing location determines the quality of schools that children attend, the quality of public services received, access to employment and transportation, exposure to health risks, access to health care, and more. For those living in high poverty neighborhoods, these factors can significantly inhibit life outcomes.
Homeownership is proven to build wealth, strengthen communities, and promote both educational and employment achievement in areas where affordable housing opportunities are available.
Over the past 30 years, Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky has witnessed firsthand the lasting impact that homeownership can make on individuals, families, and communities, proving that making affordable housing available does more than just put a roof over someone’s head, it changes lives and strengthens the neighborhoods we live in.
