About Us

Horizon Housing Foundation has been providing social services to Low-Income Housing Tax Credit properties since its creation in 2000. In 2016, Horizon arranged services to over 70 properties. These services promote economic self-sufficiency, education, and health. Horizon recognizes that the residents and needs at each property are different, and so tailors services to the individual needs of each property. This ensures that we make the most meaningful impact for the residents we serve. Horizon has experience providing enrichment services to families, seniors, and veterans in both rural and urban areas of Missouri and Georgia, and we are currently expanding our reach to serve Colorado, Oklahoma, and Hawaii.

 

Horizon holds a unique perspective and expertise within the affordable housing sector, able to navigate both the technical realm of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and the complex and ever-changing world of social services. We are passionate about achieving positive outcomes for low-income families and individuals, and we have a 15-year track record of providing excellent social services and programs for residents of affordable housing. In addition we understand that healthy, stable residents lead to a financially healthy and stable property, and that a high-functioning property is good for its residents.
