July 31, 2014 at 4:58 pm Leave a comment

For our members in Greensboro – You’ve likely heard about what’s been going on with the Heritage House condos and some of you might be wondering how you can help. One need they have is finding affordable housing for some of the displaced residents. We’ve been asked to share the information below on the basic housing needs they have and the contact information for the folks coordinating the effort to help:

Residents still need to find houses or apartments — studios or one- to three-bedroom units — with a monthly rent of $600 or less.

Property owners can contact:
Beth McKee Huger, Greensboro Housing Coalition, beth@greensborohousingcoalition.com
or
Lisa Taylor, New Jerusalem Cathedral, lisa@newjc.org.

Owners should include their criteria for accepting tenants in their emails.

Here’s the full press release from the City of Greensboro:
