Habitat neighborhood wins affordable housing award

EAST FLAT ROCK — Dodd Meadows, a single-family home neighborhood developed by Henderson County Habitat for Humanity with support from the City of Asheville, is one of four developments that serve as models for other communities across the state.

Sponsored by the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, the Housing North Carolina Awards were presented at the N.C. Affordable Housing Conference, which hosted nearly 1,000 housing industry professionals at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Winning developments were selected for affordability, design, sustainability, community contribution, resident services and creative partnerships. The other three were:

  • Mother Teresa Villa, Charlotte, a home for adults with developmental disabilities that was created by the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte Housing Corporation with support from the City of Charlotte and co-sponsored by InReach, a local nonprofit that provides residential support for people with disabilities.
  • Hope Court, Greensboro, a permanent supportive housing facility for formerly homeless individuals, persons with disabilities and working families developed by Affordable Housing Management with support from the City of Greensboro.
  • Parkside Commons, Greenville, a rental development offering 98 apartments for Greenville’s seniors, developed by Taft Development Group with support from the City of Greenville.
