The CARING Approach

As part of Front Porch, the distinctive qualities that set CARING Housing Ministries apart from others in the affordable housing field of service begins with our approach. It’s about managing relationships, not properties. This unique point of view forms the foundation of our mission to create, nurture and preserve quality affordable housing communities that enrich the lives of our residents.

Our committed staff, collaborative relationships with partners and outside agencies, extensive knowledge of the field and vast experience are key to our goal of creating living environments that our residents are proud to call home.

“CARING Housing Ministries maintains high quality standards at the communities it serves and is a vital link for expanding the availability of affordable housing through its network of partners.”
John Woodward, CEO, Front Porch
Competency
We foster successful ongoing relationships and aim to maintain communities that are both fiscally and socially fit. Our staff receives training to balance our understanding of human need with the regulations and programs involved with affordable housing. It is how we can effectively manage the needs of our communities with that of our business.
Compassion
At CARING Housing Ministries, we firmly believe everyone deserves a good home. As an organization of like-minded, kind-hearted people, we are dedicated to serving others the best way we know how—through quality affordable housing. We see people first in our business, so we choose to manage relationships, not properties. This unique point of view is precisely what sets us apart and forms the foundation of our mission.
Capacity
Like the depth of our experience and expertise, our desire is to serve others. We strive to do what is humanly possible for our residents and have the infrastructure in place to handle the needs of our residents and the needs of a thriving business. We are here to help those people in need to find a place to proudly call home – a space they can call their own. That is what drives us.
