Family Housing Resources, Inc. (FHR) was established by the Industrial Development Authority of Pima County 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.
In 1991, the primary program for FHR was operating the Mortgage Credit Certificate Program which provides a tax credit to first time homebuyers. In 1994, FHR became its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In 1998, FHR began its Homeownership Program to provide housing counseling, down payment assistance and foreclosure avoidance services. In 2017, the MCC program moved to FHR’s sister agency, Community Investment Corporation, and was ended its foreclosure avoidance services due to lack of funding.
FHR’s focus on providing affordable housing services continued through ownership of three 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 nearly 12,000 individuals and families during the last 27 years in achieving the American Dream: homeownership.
In 2019, FHR expanded upon their vision and mission to include pathways to increased wealth and financial freedom through housing support, education and strategic partnerships. While continuing to provide access to safe and affordable rental units, homebuyer education and down payment assistance, FHR began offering access to student loan debt reduction services. FHR is committed to serving community needs in the most effective and productive ways possible.
Additionally, in 2015, Family Housing Resources, Inc., established the FHR Cares Community Investment Fund as a tax-exempt, charitable organization in Pima County, Arizona. Through grant giving, the mission of FHR Cares is to assist the efforts of organizations whose work directly improves the Pima County community, particularly in the vital area of affordable housing.
