Meet Our Team

Our Transition Coaches work with families and individuals to find opportunities, not just in housing, but in employment, education and health and wellness.



At Richmond Opportunities Inc., we believe it’s time to take a new path. Using research and best practices, we’re NOT doing things the way they’ve been done in the past. We serve our community by bringing together residents living in public housing with the Richmond Redevelopment & Housing Authority and individuals and organizations concerned about the present and future state of affordable housing in our city.
