 ABOUT The Home Ownership Resource Center

 

(HORC) is a non-profit agency dedicated to assisting homeowners and homebuyers in

 

acquiring and sustaining home ownership.  We provide home ownership opportunities, homebuyer education, budget and credit counseling and foreclosure prevention and intervention for people in need throughout Southwest Florida.

 

We provide access to reasonable credit accommodations that address a flexible underwriting criteria, nontraditional forms of collateral, low equity positions and minimal closing costs without jeopardizing HORC’s expectation of full repayment.

 

In the Mid 1980s the "Affordable Housing Task Force" was made up of private citizens who were looking into ways of developing additional housing that could be made affordable for purchase by lower income families. This group was assigned the task of looking into ways that money being made available through the federal and state governments could be utilized to construct affordable housing in neighborhoods targeted for redevelopment. 


The rules governing the use of these funds required that the monies be funneled through a community based non-profit organization. Thus, at the recommendation of the Affordable Housing Task Force, six community leaders with a passion for affordable housing decided to form the HDC, which was incorporated in August, 1991.
