Outreach Event

Visit Sanctuary Brewing during the time frame of November 24th-December 28th to help create Housing Assistance's Art Installation. We will be asking the community, "What does home mean to you?" in hopes to receive new perspectives on what the community needs are when it comes to affordable housing. Add your own definition for a suggested donation of just $1.00! We hope you come view our unique piece of artwork and learn more about affordable housing in Henderson County and what The Housing Assistance Corporation does to help. 

Women for the Women in the Need (WIN)

 Housing Assistance Corporation is excited to announce that we will be re-launching our WIN volunteer program. This is a volunteer group comprised of women, who aim to help women in the community needing assistance. This is apart of our Home Repair Program which addresses health and safety hazards in the homes of people who have limited income and resources. Using volunteer and contract labor, we are able to help many people remain living independently in their homes and communities. If you are interested in participating in the WIN volunteer program, contact our volunteer coordinator!
