To make repairs and accessibilty upgrades for elderly, disabled, and other low income homeowners-making the home safer.
Weaver Community Housing Association, a charitable, 501(c)3 non-profit, has become a thriving, affordable housing organization with two unique, cooperatively-run communities in Chapel Hill-Carrboro.
Several years ago, a group of affordable housing advocates and social justice activists from the Chapel Hill, NC area united with a mission to create living structures to accomplish two main goals:
1. Provide permanently affordable and sustainable housing for lower income families and individuals
2. Empower residents to make decisions and cooperatively control and maintain their homes and communities
This mission originated from alarm at the rapidly depleting availability of local affordable housing and absentee landlords who too often where subjecting residents to poor and unsafe living conditions.
We believe that the egalitarian, democratic values of the cooperative model address those two main goals and offer the best opportunity for healthy, sustainable communities.
