United Housing, About Us

United Housing (UHI) is a nonprofit affordable housing agency that serves the City of Memphis, Shelby County, and West Tennessee. UHI targets its services to families that are under served by the traditional homeownership industry.

Mission
United Housing provides quality housing opportunities to Mid-South residents through financial education, mortgage lending, home building and renovation, and creative partnerships with public, private and nonprofit entities.

History
Founded in 1994 by Tim Bolding, as an affiliate of the United of the Mid-South and funded through two Hope III awards from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, UHI has continued to leverage grant funds with private financing. 

In January 2000, UHI formally incorporated as an independent organization and soon after became part of the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation’s (NRC) NeighborWorks ® America Network.  Through NRC, UHI is linked to a national network of over 230 local nonprofit organizations working to revitalize America’s declining neighborhoods by supporting homeownership and preserving housing affordable to low-to-moderate-income families.

In June 2002, United Housing increased its impact on its target communities by receiving Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) designation from the U.S. Department of Treasury.  This certification allows UHI to tap into federal funding that increases the effectiveness of local dollars spent on neighborhood revitalization.

In addition to expanding upon its homebuyer education services and rolling out its new first mortgage product line offering competitive rates and services in 2005, UHI also broke ground on the Wolf River Estates Project.  The WRE project is a public private partnership that when completed will include the development of a 320 middle income house, a public art scape and the expansion of a major thoroughfare into the surrounding community.

As of 2016, UHI has helped more than 4,000 families, for a more than $500 million impact on Memphis and the Mid-South and continues its efforts in serving families who are underserved by the traditional homeownership industry.
