If you are seeking housing counseling services

Our housing counselors are here to serve you remotely. The first step in becoming a housing counseling client or applying for our down payment loan program is completing the housing counseling intake form. Once you complete the intake form, return it to housingcounseling@piedmonthousing.org or drop it off at our Berkmar location. A housing counselor will follow-up with you via email or phone.

Covid safety at our communities

The below precautions are currently in place at our communities.

  • Visitor limitations and gathering. Residents are encouraged to limit the number of visitors they welcome into their home. Residents will limit gathering in communal areas such as the lobbies and community rooms of each community. All gyms/workout rooms, community center, libraries and other communal areas are temporarily closed. Laundry rooms remain open.
  • Entrances/Exits. For the foreseeable future, each senior living community will have one main point of entry and exit.
  • Regular Check-ins. We will be conducting regular check-ins with residents at our senior living communities via phone.
  • Heightened sanitizing and cleaning. Staff sanitizes our communities once a day and we have contracted a cleaner at many of our senior communities.
