Home Is The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization formed to meet the critical shortage of affordable housing options in rural Preble County, Ohio and is made up of 3 programs.


The H.I.T. Foundation owns and manages around 63 rental properties in Preble County. Approximately one half of these units are available to families at affordable rates that do not exceed 30% of their adjusted income.


The H.I.T. Foundation has a homeless shelter in Eaton, OH for Preble County residents.  Clients meet regularly with shelter staff & a case manager to work towards their housing needs. They are expected to meet weekly goals focusing on housing in order to obtain their own housing within 30-45 days.

- Staffed 24/7
- 3 meals, showers, laundry facility, basic transportation, phone, & computer
