A true ‘hands up’ model, offering coaching, skill-building and financing to help Beloit families become proud homeowners.
Based in the belief that homeownership is possible for anyone willing to work for it, Acts Housing takes a unique approach to partnering with families to support them as they engage in the process of learning about home ownership and the opportunities that exist for them.
Homebuyers are empowered to become strong managers of their financial well-being and given the skills and support to rehabilitate and care for their new homes.
Focused on increasing homeownership in the Hackett and Merrill neighborhoods, Acts Housing is working to build a sustainable, viable and affordable homeownership market for Beloit families with limited incomes – relieving taxpayers of significant financial burdens through home rehabilitation and revitalizing the local housing market and economy. Local homebuyers will invest an estimated $7.5 million in Beloit neighborhoods over 5 years.
Acts Housing’s Beloit Initiative began in 2019. The Hendricks Family Foundation was pleased to join with other funders in providing support for this initiative.

I have been in residence at RVCP for quite some time. The staff have been very good to myself and every one else. They are pros at helping at find jobs, home, or whatever we might need. Honest, open, and easy to talk with. The food in the mess is good. For a transitional house, I rate it from 1-5, a 4.
Rock Valley Community Programs veteran housing program has helped me by giving me an alternate path to my future which would have put me in prison. Its like I got a fresh start and I don’t feel alone because there are others going through the same things as me living here as well.
In April 2011, Rock Valley Community Programs (RVCP) opened Housing for our Vets. The transitional living facility, containing 24 studio units can house up to 48 homeless veterans at one time. Veterans can stay for up to 24 months.
Housing 4 Our Vets provides secure, safe and sober housing along with supportive services. RVCP provides screening, assessments and individualized case management. Veterans are connected to training and employment services, permanent housing, counseling, substance abuse recovery services and benefits counseling.
The Hendricks Family Foundation was pleased to join with other local funders in support of this program, providing capital funds for each phase of the project.
