Putting affordable homeownership within reach of everyone.

Factory-built homes are a solution to housing affordability.

Here’s How

A home is a home.

We believe a home is a home, and that factory-built is a process – not a product. Next Step and our myriad partners are working to help more families own their own home. Increased access to homeownership creates wealth building opportunities for families, builds a greater sense of stability and responsibility, and contributes to vibrant communities across the country. For the past five years, our network has generated that impact, and pushed our mission forward.

  • Who we are.

    We are the only mission-driven organization wholly focused on harnessing the potential of modern, energy-efficient factory-built homes to create sustainable homeownership opportunities for individuals and families across the country.
