Whether you’re looking for housing help (you want to own a home, need home repairs, looking for a place to rent, etc.), searching for opportunities to volunteer in Appalachia, or you want to support our work in East Kentucky, you’re right where you need to be.
We help low-income families in Breathitt, Knott, Leslie, and Perry counties in East Kentucky achieve their dreams of owning a new home. HDA-built homes are affordable, high quality, long-lasting, and energy efficient. We do not give away houses, and it’s rare that we sell an already-built home. Rather, families must first qualify for our program, and then, we work with them through Housing Counseling to prepare them for homeownership.
Inside or outside, our carpenters can make the improvements your home needs. Whether you need two or more major repairs, critical repairs (like a new roof, new flooring, etc.), or accessibility repairs (wheelchair ramps, bathroom replacement, etc.), HDA is here to make the repairs qualifying homeowners need at a price they can afford!
HDA offers affordable rental homes for low-income families and 1-BR and 2-BR apartments for qualifying very low and low-income applicants. We also have Single Occupancy Apartments for single homeless individuals. Please be aware that we have a limited number of rental units and very low turnover. Contact us for more information on availability and/or for a Waiting List application.
We offer group volunteering opportunities to folks from all over the country in our Spring and Summer Volunteer Program. We welcome College Mission Trips, Church Youth Groups, Corporate Retreats, Senior/Older Adult Volunteer Groups, etc. We also have a Local Volunteer Program for groups from churches, schools, and businesses in the counties we serve to help out at our Volunteer Events.
A low-cost home energy assessment can find leaks and other problems that cause your home to use more energy, making your heating and cooling costs much higher than they should be. This service is available to everyone regardless of income!
Due to the flood disaster in East Kentucky, we have suspended our usual events so that we may focus on helping our community recover. Please come join us!
Families in East Kentucky need your help. Recovery lasts a lot longer than media attention, and our community will need volunteers for years as we enter this long-term recovery period. Literally overnight, hundreds of people lost everything they’d worked so hard for, and now, they are struggling to rebuild their lives. If you are able to commit your time or support to East Kentucky’s flood survivors, please reach out to us and make an impact on the future of our region in-person!Sign Me Up!
