Our story

Family Housing Resources, Inc. (FHR) was established by the Industrial Development Authority of the County of Pima in 1991 as a statewide organization dedicated to providing low and moderate income individuals and families an opportunity to obtain quality, affordable housing through both rental and homebuyer support programs.

FHR began in 1991 by operating the Mortgage Credit Certificate Program which provides a tax credit to first time homebuyers.  In 1998, FHR began its Homeownership Program which provides housing counseling, down payment assistance and foreclosure avoidance services.  In 2017, the MCC program moved to FHR’s sister agency, Community Investment Corporation.  Also in 2017, FHR was forced to end its foreclosure avoidance services due to lack of funding.

FHR is one of the largest and most respected affordable housing providers/servicers in Arizona. Through ownership of 3 apartment properties totaling over 186 units, FHR is committed to increasing Arizona’s affordable housing stock through acquisition, rehabilitation and development of multifamily properties. In addition, FHR has assisted over 12,000 individuals and families during the last 27 years in achieving the American Dream: homeownership.

FHR operates two major housing divisions – Homeownership and Multifamily Residential Services.
