The Housing Assistance Corporation is a private, non-profit organization committed to providing safe and affordable housing for persons of limited income living in Henderson County and surrounding areas, because we believe every human being deserves the opportunity to live in a decent home.
Founded in 1988, the agency has grown from a church committee to an organization providing housing services to over 3000 families. Services provided include emergency home repair, apartment rentals, owner-built housing, farm labor housing, major rehabilitation, down payment assistance, home-ownership education and counseling.
Local financial support is generated from the United Way, Community Foundation, city and county governments, churches, businesses, civic organizations and private citizens.
Broader support is provided by many state and federal agencies including: USDA Rural Development, Housing Urban Development (HUD), the Housing Assistance Council, the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, Community Development Initiative (CDI). Grants from foundations are continuously sought to enhance all housing programs.
