Giving places new purpose

to strengthen Hamilton County communities.

When properties are productive, communities benefit. Our mission is to put properties back to productive use to transform communities one lot at a time.

Through rehab, stabilization or new-build

We operate a market-rate housing program as well as a historic structure stabilization program to prepare properties for new owners.

Through new owners with a plan

We work to sell properties to people and organizations with a transformative vision. Have an idea for a property? Let us know!

Through community partners and municipalities

We collaborate with communities and local government to ensure properties are repositioned in alignment with community plans.
