Tenants to Homeowners

An affordable, well maintained residence contributes to overall physical and mental well being and creates a sense of community. Since 1992, Tenants to Homeowners (TTH) has built, rehabilitated or acquired over 400 homes to serve as affordable housing for Lawrence residents of modest means. In 2005, TTH expanded the affordable community ideal by establishing the Lawrence Community Housing Trust program, one of 350 U.S. land trust programs that offer permanently affordable owner-occupied and rental housing at below market prices.
