Did you know that the Henderson County Housing Assistance Corporation was started in 1988 by a group of volunteers from Trinity Presbyterian Church?  The program is now celebrating its 20th anniversary of making repairs on the homes of people who are not able to financially or physically make the repairs to keep their homes safe and warm, and they assist in the building of affordable housing for Henderson County residents.

Since 1988 Housing Assistance has helped in the building of over 100 Self Help Homeownership homes; has built 4 affordable rental family apartments; two affordable rental apartments for seniors; and one handicapped accessible apartment complex.  In addition Housing Assistance makes over 250 home repairs each year with the help of volunteers.  Training for all first-time home buyers in Henderson County is also provided.

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 because they believe every human being deserves the opportunity to live in a decent home.

Trinity continues to support the Housing Assistance Corporation through its local mission ministry budget.  Volunteers are needed to assist in the home repair program, the resale shop, and administration.  Please call 828-692-4744 for more information.  If you know someone in need of this service, please provide him or her with the telephone number.
