Rental Housing serves a vital need, not only individuals, and families, but to the communities in which they serve. From our Public Housing options to our Housing Choice voucher programs we provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly and persons challenged with disabilities.
One of the major goals of the WHA is to help people realize their dreams of home ownership. We do that not only through individual counseling and instructional classes like you’ll find in our Section 32 Comprehensive HomeOwnership Program. But also through innovative programs like the Section 8 Homeownership program which helps eligible participants who qualify for mortgage assistance to purchase homes. Additionally our Hope VI communities have made it possible for hundreds to realized their dreams of having a place all their own.
We’re much more than just a provider of housing opportunities to eligible low-income residents. We’re a community builder. Through our programs, individuals and families who are serious about achieving self-sufficiency can improve and develop the skills they need to gain employment, become non-subsidized market renters, or ultimately become homeowners. Our programs also provide residents a chance to make a difference in the places they live, work, and raise their families. Because ultimately we believe restoring communities starts with helping people.
Throughout the last several years we’ve seen the face of Wilmington changing for the better. New businesses and properties have sprung up, revitalizing neighborhoods and improving communities. We’re excited by the changes and are pleased that we’ve been part of that effort. Not only have we created award winning communities, but we’ve also restored and upgraded a number of properties. Fortunately this is just the beginning.
