Working in Your Community

Housing is an essential part of how communities function and thrive. The New Jersey Realtors® Housing Opportunity Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to foster increasing opportunities in New Jersey for safe, affordable housing. We strive to help residents throughout the state — especially those living on low or moderate incomes — find safe, affordable places to call home. Funds provided to the Foundation go towards other 501(c)(3) organizations throughout the state that create affordable homeownership options, develop public awareness, and offer homebuyer education.

Projects supported by the foundation include: Donations to victims of Superstorm Sandy Training Realtors® through the Employer-Assisted Housing and Expanding Housing Opportunity Seminars to help businesses develop EAH benefit plans for their employees Providing Financial Literacy and homebuyer seminars to the public throughout the state Sponsorship of Habitat for Humanity projects around the state Boys and Girls Club of Mercer County Community Garden and Little Library


Since its inception, Realtors® Care Day has been a great way for members to give back to the local community through improvements including landscaping and outdoor cleanup. Additional projects can include adaptive and safety modifications for the elderly and disabled. Ultimately, the projects not only restore a homeowner’s pride, but also instill a revitalizing momentum in the community. Realtors® Care Day is a valuable part of the NJ Realtors® Housing Opportunity Foundation’s commitment to sustaining affordable housing. Interested in volunteering?
