As Richmond, Virginia’s largest not-for-profit affordable housing developer, the Better Housing Coalition’s (BHC's) mission is to change lives and transform communities through high-quality affordable housing. Since 1988, BHC has revitalized several historic communities and developed new ones in Richmond, Chesterfield, Henrico and Petersburg.
Its portfolio includes the development and operation of 15 multi-family rental communities – eight of which are for low-wealth seniors – with 1,500 rental units, and 200 new or renovated single-family homes built or renovated, and sold to first-time homebuyers.
BHC communities are characterized by attractive homes for people of mixed incomes; eco-friendly features and sustainable development; collaborations with residents and community partners; neighborhood preservation, and architectural features not typically associated with affordable housing. BHC also provides free and voluntary resident support services to help children reach their aspirations, adults become more self-reliant, and seniors age in place and lead healthier lives.
The organization relies on philanthropic support to advance its mission. Better Housing Coalition is a member of the NeighborWorks® network. For more information call 804-644-0546 or visit our website: www.betterhousingcoalition.org.
