Housing Help

why we help with housing

In West Virginia, 1 in 9 households spend half or more of their income on housing. That means every day in West Virginia, families are forced to make impossible decisions just to pay their rent or mortgage. Home is peace of mind. It’s a chance to work toward security and opportunity. A decent home is sturdy and safe. An affordable home leaves financial room for other life essentials such as health care, savings, and education.
