Counting point features between point features

I tried to look at all possibilities to be able to count the number of housholds (point feaures with lat long) that exist between each household and a point feature of interest. Please help.

The key question here is "what do you consider to be 'between'". If you mean "directly between", can you draw a line (Points to Lines tool) between the point of interest and each house, and then intersect that line with the households feature class? That would tell you how many (if any) of the houses were exactly in line. You could make this a little "fuzzier" by buffering each of the households by a small amount (say 10m) and then doing the above. It's crude, and may be intensive if you have lots of data, but it should work.
If you mean "between" in any other sense ("north of the house and south of the feature", for example) then you'll have to take a different approach.
Let us know exactly what you're trying to find out, ideally with an example, and we'll be able to be more helpful.
