 WE need your help!

 The SNA Housing Task Force has been working diligently in an effort to fight homelessness. Our current goals are to create a Master List of Landlords for resource advocates and caseworkers, and to have a master housing list that is searchable, and can be easily updated by the landlords that we can share with customers.

 We need your assistance in our effort to bring landlords to the table and engage them. Please share this survey with any property owners you may know.

 Surveys may be submitted electronically (preferably), or may be printed and filled out; paper surveys will be collected at the SNA Housing Task Force Meetings in July and August, or at the SNA General Meetings in July and August. We will conclude the survey by August 31st, 2016.

 Thank you in advance for your participation and assistance!


  • Jennifer: A Mother's Story

    Nearly three years ago, Jennifer heard about the Family Self Sufficiency Program (FSS) Program.  A single mom, who was trying to sort out the pieces of her life between jobs, school, and raising her daughter, Jennifer decided to try something new.    

    Jennifer enrolled in the FSS Program and began to meet with her case manager.  In just over two months, she started working full-time and has worked for the better part of the last three years.  Jennifer still meets with her case manager regularly to set goals and strategies for her success. 

    Because Jennifer began the FSS Program at a time when she was unemployed, when she did get a job, she was able to start an FSS escrow savings account.  With an FSS escrow savings account, money is deposited based, in part, on the enrollee’s higher earned income. 

    When Jennifer’s car quit running this past spring, she contacted her case manager for help.  She remembered from previous meetings she may be eligible to make a withdrawal from her escrow savings account for just such an emergency.  Jennifer needed to retain transportation in order to continue working, get her daughter to school, and care for her parents.   

    After documenting her need, everything came together for Jennifer and she was able to purchase another car!!   In Jennifer’s own words, “The escrow money is just an extra perk, but it’s all the services I receive that I appreciate the most.”

     To learn more about the FSS Program and how it can benefit you and your family,

  • Housing Opportunities

    Congratulations to HONK on another beautiful rehab! HONK revealed their latest home on June 9th, and it is amazing! HONK currently has several homes available. Please see this link for more information on HONKs program and the most recent homes available.

    Why Honk is Needed

    Housing — in particular its location — is the primary mechanism for accessing opportunity in our society. Housing location determines the quality of schools that children attend, the quality of public services received, access to employment and transportation, exposure to health risks, access to health care, and more. For those living in high poverty neighborhoods, these factors can significantly inhibit life outcomes.

    Homeownership is proven to build wealth, strengthen communities, and promote both educational and employment achievement in areas where affordable housing opportunities are available.

    Over the past 20+ years, Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky has witnessed firsthand the lasting impact that homeownership can make on individuals, families, and communities, proving that making affordable housing available does more than just put a roof over someone’s head, it changes lives and strengthens the neighborhoods we live in.

  • Family Opens Addiction Family Support Office

    If you have a family member with heroin or opioid addiction, there's new help from a family who's been there.

    That's the message that Carol Wagner is sending to those through her nonprofit Foxfire Foundation's new office, in the Decoursey Building, 3414 Decoursey Ave. in Latonia.

    Wagner's son, Chad Wagner, died from a heroin overdose in Cincinnati in 2005. He was 37.

    Like other parents who've lost their children to addiction, Wagner and her husband, Cliff Wagner, of Fort Mitchell, took their story public in hopes of ending stigma, gaining treatment for those addicted and helping others whose children are fighting the disease.

    Call 859-866-9675 for more information.
