We believe individuals, families and communities are safer, healthier and stronger when everyone has a home. At HOM, we are dedicated to building communities where the promise of home is a reality for everyone. We can’t make good on that promise without landlords to participate in our housing programs.

Thanks to your hard work and dedication, I have a place I can call home for the first time in almost three months. It's hard to describe how mentally and physically difficult it is to be homeless, the level of despair it creates, and the feeling of hopelessness I experienced on a daily basis is hard to describe.
