What We Do
Mission and Vision
The North Carolina Housing Coalition is a private, non-profit
membership organization. Our mission is to
lead a movement to ensure that every North Carolinian has a home in which to
live with dignity and opportunity. We envision that all North Carolina communities include an
ample supply of quality affordable homes.
Our purpose is to educate the public about housing issues facing low and moderate-income households and to lead an advocacy effort that empowers residents and advocates to impact the housing needs and issues that affect North Carolinians.
We work with all people and organizations interested in housing, listen to a variety of viewpoints and seek common goals.
We recognize that there are competing viewpoints on many issues but work to listen respectfully and build bridges to support our mission.
Our positions are evidence-based.
We work on the forefront of all issues related to our mission.
We seek meaningful partnerships on every initiative we undertake.
Resource and Referral – We respond to numerous calls and emails from people across the state who need affordable housing. We provide them with information on how to find housing in their community.
Technical Assistance/Outreach – We provide guidance and instruction to groups across the state to help build local housing coalitions. We also organize Foreclosure Prevention Workshops, Fair Housing Workshops and are developing a Housing Communications Workshop.
Advocacy – We champion affordable housing at the state and federal legislatures. We also encourage and empower local citizens to advocate to their city and county governments.
Clearinghouse for Data, Statistics, Best Practices and Research – We collect, analyze and disseminate the most up-to-date information on affordable housing. We include this in our twice-monthly e-newsletter and archive it on our website.
