One-for-One Housing Solution in Memory of Kent Anderson Hadnot, Sr.
about Hadnot housing
Hadnot Housing was born from Kenya’s experience at Texas A&M University. As the oldest of 6 children, rent was sometimes hard to come by and she had to work two work-study jobs to make ends meet. She was angry and approached her father, Kent Hadnot Sr. about an idea to develop college apartments specifically for low-income students. She wanted to provide food, cheap or free rent, and a luxury, modern design that would not make the students feel less than.
Post-graduation, the concept grew to be public and section-8 housing for low-income and impoverished individuals who need a place to live and work. Before her father passed away, Kenya was able to work for a real estate development company who wanted to provide low-income housing to individuals on the East Coast. She asked her father to become apart of her Board of Directors and guide her through the process of doing this ourselves.
In partnership with Mother Fortress, Hadnot Housing will provide luxury and modern tiny homes, apartments, condos and townhomes within green communities for low-income and impoverished residents in locations chosen by Mother Fortress clients.
