Greensboro, NC 27405

triton buildingA central location that creates synergy and collaboration between affordable housing related agencies serving Guilford County residents.

The goal of the Housing Hub is to increase the collective capacity beyond the 6,000 low-income people currently served with housing, education and job training services. The partnership includes Community Housing Solutions, Greensboro Housing Coalition, Habitat for Humanity, Housing Consultants Group, Partnership Homes, and Tiny Houses Greensboro.

Why is this needed?
There is a critical need for affordable housing in Greensboro as demand has far outpaced the supply of decent affordable housing. Consider these numbers:

  • 55% of Greensboro households are low-income.
  • Over 35,000 low-income families pay more than 30% of their income for housing.
  • Fair market rent in Greensboro for a two-bedroom apartment is over $710.
  • $14.68: Hourly wage needed to afford a two-bedroom apartment at fair market.
