Welcome to Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky

honkprojectSince 1991, Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky has helped members of the Northern Kentucky community to realize the American dream of homeownership by providing affordable housing solutions to deserving families and individuals, allowing them to reconstruct their lives by building their futures on a solid foundation of faith, education, and support.

With the help of our numerous volunteers, corporate and community partners throughout the Northern Kentucky region, we continue to fulfill our mission of changing lives, strengthening neighborhoods and building hope, one home and one family at a time.

Affordable Housing Management

HONK performs primary maintenance tasks to ensure the quality and security of the dwelling.  In preparation for ownership, residents are asked to do routine homeowner tasks such as shoveling snow, mowing lawns, changing furnace filters, etc.

 Client Support
