Our Pledge To You

As we rise to meet the challenges brought on by the pandemic and recent events, our first thoughts continue to be about the safety and well-being of our employees, residents, and communities. Since 1958 we’ve worked hard to ensure affordable housing is available in Western, PA. We know this is a challenging time for all of us. As we all work to protect what matters most – our health and the health and safety of our families – we also understand that our homes play an important role in our well-being. Now more than ever, our health and the health of our community depends on everyone having an affordable place to call home.

We want you to know we are here to help. In the spirit of caring for one another, we are committed to ensuring that our region’s residents are not faced with the threat of losing their housing in the middle of a global pandemic and economic crisis. We know that the impacts of eviction proceedings can be devastating. We also know that applying for rental relief can be complicated and confusing, and we’re here to help. We have trained and expanded our staff to help our residents apply for housing relief programs that allow our tenants to stay in their homes throughout this crisis.
