Community Housing Solutions provides decent, safe and affordable housing to low-income households in Guilford County, N.C., restoring dignity and hope to its neighbors and neighborhoods.
Creating better places to live
Community Housing Solutions works to eliminate substandard housing in the region by serving low-income homeowners who physically cannot do the work themselves and cannot afford a for-profit contractor. The repairs make the homes warmer, drier and safer—and better, healthier places to live.
Founded in 2002 as Housing Greensboro, Community Housing Solutions has repaired more than 500 homes and invested more than $4.2 million to preserve affordable housing for low-income homeowners. Its staff of nine leads more than 650 community volunteers in these efforts.
Community Housing Solutions conducts several events each year designed to help stabilize neighborhoods. Operation Inasmuch, Paint the Town and other events engage the greater community and focus on specific neighborhoods by handling home repairs designed to lift both the homeowner and neighborhood.
