DAVIDSON – The Davidson Housing Coalition has launched a $50,000 fundraising campaign that will allow the nonprofit to continue helping people find affordable housing.

Budget cuts from state and national housing funders threaten to diminish its service capacity.

“Every day we see fellow citizens in need of clean, safe, affordable housing, and we have the knowledge and programs to help them stabilize their lives,” board chair Margo Williams said. “But it takes steady funding to do that, and many of our regular sources have been forced to curtail their giving.”

Since 1997, DHC has built more than 74 units of affordable housing (both rental and owned) for 350 citizens. 

DHC has also offers free financial counseling and homebuyer education, job search advice and computer access to online job listings and critical repairs to houses of lower wealth families.

The fundraising campaign gives Davidson residents an opportunity to show they agree with that belief in a tangible way.
