Families. Homes. opportunity.

Changing Neighborhoods. Changing Lives.

NestQuest Houston, a 501(c)3 non profit, helps families rent quality homes near excellent schools.

Participants in the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), also known as Section 8, all too often find they have limited options for high quality housing in safe neighborhoods. We believe that families who want to move to high opportunity areas should have that choice. NestQuest works directly with families, landlords and government agencies to give families a real choice in where they live.

NestQuest operates under a corporate leasing model to give families who want to move to a new neighborhood, the best chance possible to find a comfortable home zoned to some of the best schools in the greater Houston region.
