Greensboro Housing Coalition
From Homeless to Homeowner and each step in between:
Greensboro Housing Coalition
Since 1989 our mission is to empower people with low and moderate incomes or those with special needs to live in safe, fair, and affordable housing. GHC offers our community greater access to housing opportunities by providing the resources necessary to help individuals and families climb the ladder to better housing and to prevent housing loss.
Greensboro Housing Coalition collaborates with homeless service providers and other stakeholders as part of the Guilford County CoC (Continuum of Care). The (CoC) is a regional/local planning body that coordinates housing and services funding for homeless families and individuals. The role of GHC in the CoC is through housing counseling to work with people we serve on diversion strategies for those that are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. We also work with the Coordinated Assessment/Entry Specialist who attempts to find temporary solutions and/or connects the people to Housing First, Rapid Re-housing or transitional housing programs.
Our Homelessness Prevention Housing Counselors meet with clients on business days (Monday-Fridays, except scheduled holidays) from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Individuals can call our switchboard at 336-691-9521 to confirm that we are open.
The N.C. Foreclosure Prevention Fund helps North Carolina homeowners struggling to pay their mortgage due to job loss or other temporary financial hardships, such as divorce or the illness/death of a co-borrower. The fund also assists returning veterans transitioning to civilian life. If you qualify, the fund can pay up to $36,000 towards your mortgage and related expenses for up to 36 months while you search for work or complete job training. If you are re-employed but earning less and are still struggling to pay your mortgage, the fund may still be able to help by reducing your principal loan balance so your monthly payments are more affordable. Individuals who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure can call 336-691-9521 to schedule an appointment. Our Homeownership Housing Counseling Team meets with clients on an appointment basis only.
