Central to preventing and ending homelessness is ensuring that there is an adequate amount of affordable housing available in our community. It is known that people who lack a permanent address have difficulty applying for jobs, their children are not provided with a stable educational environment, and they utilize a disproportionate amount of emergency room care, law enforcement resources and public health intervention.
Both Durham and Orange Counties ten-year plans to end homelessness call for increasing the number of supportive and affordable housing units.
Housing for New Hope plans to continue to develop these types of apartment developments, through its own efforts and through the efforts of its partners.
In May 2010, Housing for New Hope received approval from the Durham City Council for funding to develop ten units of workforce housing in northwest Durham, including eight two-bedroom apartments, two three-bedroom apartments, and a 750 square-foot office.
Construction is complete and we are already accepting rental applications.
Workforce housing is designed to serve entry-level city, county, university, and hospital employees and many others who work in the community and earn at or below 50 percent of area median household income.
