Our Background


Bernie’s Homeless Shelter

South Lebanon, Ohio

New Housing Ohio, Inc. (NHO) is a developer, owner, and manager of specialized housing, primarily serving the mentally ill, developmentally disabled, substance users, and homeless populations. We began in 1995, in Lebanon, as New Housing Opportunities, Inc. Starting in the mid-2000s, we expanded into other communities throughout Ohio. Eventually, we opened an office in Tiffin, which now serves a large portion of Northwest Ohio. Additionally, we acquired the assets of THR, Inc., an organization in Butler County. Most recently, NHO acquired The Nest Recovery Homes, a faith based organization founded in Warren County. Today, New Housing Ohio, Inc. consists of nine separate corporations and several quasi-independent programs.

Our Vision

The people we serve are living as independently as possible, enjoying a high quality of life. Their participation in the community, both socially and economically, is widespread and evident. The community we serve is more cohesive, inviting, integrated, and safe because of our actions.
