What clients and partners say about us:

There is no word that can describe how much my kids and I appreciate all the help from Piedmont Housing.  Without them, we wouldn’t be living our dream of owning a house.  My counselors were very consistent and flexible to work with me through my difficult work schedule.  Homebuying Client,  2015

Having access to the DPA programs helps many young families afford a home that they may not otherwise be able to acquire. To date, the staff at Piedmont Housing has been wonderful to work with and I look forward to working with them to help many more new homeowners in the future.  Lender, 2014
