About Us

Affordable single-family home in Washington, NC

Metropolitan Housing and CDC (MHCDC) is a non-profit, faith-based organization. Over the past 12 years, MHCDC has developed more than 900 units of safe, sanitary, affordable single- and multi-family housing as well needs-appropriate housing for seniors, survivors of domestic violence, HIV/AIDS patients and their families, and people with handicaps. Plans for more housing for agricultural workers and those with special needs are underway.

Metropolitan was born out of a need for increased home ownership, improved rental housing, and appropriate housing for residents with special needs in our communities. More specifically, MHCDC was formed as a direct response to the community's need to combat deteriorating housing, homelessness, substance abuse, and increasing crime and unemployment rates.

The vision of MHCDC has been emulated in many communities. We have assisted 30 churches in obtaining funding for various projects. Recently, a Leadership Conference was hosted to teach representatives from the faith-based and secular agencies how to implement their vision in their communities. Support from the Duke Endowment has allowed Metropolitan to build partnerships with area churches, other non-profits, and social service agencies to provide emergency assistance, food, shelter, and other human service needs.

We continue to be a resource for individuals and organizations wishing to make a difference in their communities.
