​The BFFCO Vision Is to see rental subsidy be utilized as the temporary and transitional resource that it was originally intended to be. We believe that Public Housing and Housing Choice Vouchers were never intended to become permanent housing and we should discourage the perception from the current and future families who are able-bodied, who will receive housing assistance. 

Apart from our vision, we strive to "break the cycle of poverty" that still exists among many of our Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher residents.


  • Advocacy: Putting voice with action in pursuit of our vision
  • Compassion: Serving our clients with dignity, respect and care
  • Collaboration: Partnering with all who can help us help others
  • Progress: Pushing ourselves toward thoughtful, creative, long-term solutions
  • Diversity: Embracing a wide array of viewpoints and possibilities
  • Integrity: Doing the right thing in all we do
  • Stewardship: Managing fiscal and programmatic resources responsibly and ethically

We've been bridging gaps in services since 2008. We are an IRS recognized nonprofit organization built to empower all low income individuals to become self-sufficient and off all forms of government, state and local assistance and into home buyers. We have assisted over 3,000 individuals thus far with housing, employment, food and medical insurance.
