"Strong Communities Start at Home" reflects our belief that a
healthy, safe home is foundational to a strong community.

Homeport's work is broad, but it centers on one strategic focal point: creating a healthy, stable home for all.
Because when the home is strong, the whole community is strong.

Real Estate Development

Creating homes and neighborhoods that provide the foundation for a better life

Homeport starts with building homes. We build everything from energy-efficient rental communities that are affordable to limited-income seniors and families, to single-family homes in historic neighborhoods, to the occasional market-rate property. Whether it's a new build or a much-needed rehab, the end goal is always the same: helping people gain access to homes that will provide the foundation for a better life.

Resident Services

going beyond a "roof over the head"

For many of Homeport's residents, getting into a safe, stable home that they can afford is only the beginning. We want to see people thrive, not just survive. Homeport connects families to resources from other non-profits and agencies, brings fresh produce markets to our properties, provides out-of-school programming for hundreds of children in our communities, and more. We have an army of volunteers and partners that help us pull it off. And because of our joint efforts, lives are changed every day.

Classes & Coaching

Providing tools for long-term success

A key resource that Homeport provides, not just to residents but to the entire Central Ohio community, is public classes and one-on-one coaching to teach people successful home ownership. Classes teach families the home buying process, financial management, and basic home maintenance, while coaching provides individualized support for finance, credit problems, and foreclosure. Homeport has helped hundreds of Central Ohioans to not only purchase homes, but keep their homes, too.
