What we do

At Piedmont Housing Alliance, our mission is to create affordable housing opportunities and foster community through education, lending, and equitable development. Our service area is Planning District 10, which consists of the counties of Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa, Nelson and the city of Charlottesville.

We take a holistic approach to community management, housing counseling and financial services and development looking at the many ways that a family or individuals can benefit from our services. All of this is done with acknowledgment that the housing space locally—as well as nationally—suffered for decades from unfair and unjust lending practices, discriminatory zoning laws and other practices at the systematic level that hindered progress.

Our approach and focus on equitable practices speak to our core values of home, opportunity, community, respect, and equity. These values guide our interactions with our clients, our partners and the greater community.
