Housing Stability

We work to help struggling residents climb the socioeconomic ladder and find a clear path to homeownership. Like sun, soil and water are to seeds, safe housing and stable employment are to human beings. When we realized housing stability was getting in the way of some of our employees’ success, we started a housing program to help them keep a roof over their heads. We found that Bonton residents are 82% more likely to stay employed when they have access to stable housing. As part of this effort, we’ve launched initiatives that include:

  • A rent-to-own housing program
  • Partnerships with other nonprofits to address the lack of affordable housing crisis in Bonton
  • Financial education about the dangers of high-interest loans
