Our Housing Efforts

Buoyed by a vision of a community where everyone has a safe, respectable, and affordable place to call home, we’re committed to the concept of service-enriched housing that supports our seniors. Our access to housing with the support of services connects them to the community and has their best interests at heart.

Housing with Hope Doors

We strive to provide affordable housing options for seniors who want to live independent lifestyles where they can thrive and age in place while remaining active members of their community. We don’t just want to put a roof over their heads: We want to build them a home.

Partnership Leases

To increase the housing resources and opportunities we offer aging adults, we work with our network of trusted landlords to enhance our portfolio of affordable housing.

Long-Term Vision

We want to redefine the way senior care housing is provided to fixed-income elderly people by developing a premier senior care facility that offers luxury amenities with exceptional services at an affordable price point.


As a nonprofit, we are unable to support every issue a senior might encounter. For your convenience, we have collected a list of other organizations who may be of assistance to you. These organizations amplify our impact to support the needs of seniors.


At Housing with Hope, we often receive questions about the resources we offer. Below you’ll find some of those questions and information you need to know.

Do you offer in-home assistance for older adults or provide assisted housing for seniors?

No. We do not offer those services. But feel free to reach out to us as we may be able to assist you in locating the right housing opportunity for your senior loved one.

Do you assist only older adults in New Jersey?

At this time we only serve our local New Jersey seniors. This allows us to become intimately familiar with their unique needs as well as the state laws here in the Garden State that impact seniors directly.

I have resources to share. How do you determine which resources to include on your website?

We carefully review each program that appears on this page so that we can offer the most reliable resources possible to New Jersey’s elderly residents. You can submit a resource for consideration to info@housingwithhope.org along with a brief description of the program or resource. Thank you for your interest in supporting our mission!

I know a senior who has a housing issue not addressed on your resource page. What should I do?

Should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at info@housingwithhope.org for further guidance and support.
