the project

Our vision is to increase homeownership opportunities for low to moderate income families. Our goal is to acquire abandoned vacant properties through donations from National Community Stabilization Trust and REO's, and renovate them into homes. 

The Single Family Rehab Construction project is a collaborative initiative between nonprofit and community-based organizations and corporations dedicated to improving distressed neighborhoods in the greater Pittsburgh area. The project will take place in several phases. Each phase will be implemented in a distressed Pittsburgh area neighborhood and will include: the purchase of up to five abandoned/vacant homes; the repair, rehabilitation and renovation of identified properties/homes; and the sale of renovated homes to low/moderate income families. 

We're asking supporters to give to this current home renovation in Wilkinsburg's Princeton Park neighborhood. 

PHDA is a 501c3 nonprofit. All donations are tax deductible. An automated donation confirmation letter from ioby is sent to your email.

the steps

A new roof has been installed to stabilize the home, and we are raising funds to renovate this next projects of the PHDA. We are committed to this project and these donations will help us unlock further funding from local lenders. 

why we're doing it

Our mission is to empower low and moderate income residents to become home owners in their community and as stakeholders strengthen their neighborhoods and improve their quality of life.

Vision: Home Owners Create Stronger Communities
Home ownership is part of the American Dream. Research shows that owning a home can improve economic opportunities for low income families, while stabilizing the community as a whole. Unfortunately, home ownership rates have not improved much since the 1960s — and the dream has remained out of reach for many families. In recent years, some policymakers have even abandoned the very goal of expanding home ownership.

Along with many others, PHDA envisions a future where more low and moderate income residents will become successful home owners, improving their quality of life, building wealth for themselves and their children, and transforming neighborhoods along the way.

We know the obstacles to realizing that vision — and dedicate ourselves to overcoming them. The primary role of our nonprofit, tax-exempt community development corporation is to educate low and moderate income individuals on critical issues like credit score, money management, qualifying for first-time homebuyer assistance, home improvements, and more.

By working with respect for those we serve and a deep sense of partnership with other community stakeholders, our vision — and the individual dream of home ownership — can be realized.
