The HOME Foundation (THF) is a branch of Housing Transitions which
provides affordable housing options for income qualified individuals and families. The foundation was originally the fundraising arm for Temporary Housing, Inc, the former name of Housing Transitions. It was called Temporary Housing Foundation, until it’s name was changed to The HOME Foundation in January 2020.
Today, it operates as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), enabling it to purchase, rehabilitate, and sell homes in the State College Borough at an affordable rate to a First Time Home Buyer. In addition, the organization owns a small portfolio of income qualified affordable rental units.
The organization has provided first time home buyer education, budget counseling, and post purchase counseling since the late 1990s, but as of April 2020, THF became a HUD Certified Housing Counseling Agency. The organization is part of the PHFA Housing Counseling Network and currently employs two HUD Certified Housing Counselors.
THF welcomes involvement from community members who wish to engage in discussion and action to find affordable housing solutions for Centre County. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors occur on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm. The Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors is held in January of each year. Currently, there are openings on the Board of Directors.
