HOPE is proud to partner with Heart of Lubbock Housing Inc. in an effort to provide high quality affordable housing to families in our neighborhood who have trouble qualifying to rent or buy a home. Poor decisions in the past may have left negative credit or criminal records in their files, which means applications for better housing may be denied. These hard working families then have no choice but to remain in overpriced and under maintained houses. Their landlord realizes they have no choice and is not motivated to improve the property. With no sense of pride, neighborhoods decline and the cycle of poverty is further entrenched.
We aim to break this cycle by purchasing and refurbishing run down property in our area and renting it to people in this situation. Rent will be set at fair market rates with no government or charitable subsidies. But as a non-profit, we will be able to offer support through HOPE and other community agencies to help them succeed. With a caring and compassionate landlord, we believe families and our neighborhood can begin to thrive once again.
