Several years ago, a group of affordable housing
advocates and social justice activists from the Chapel Hill, NC area united with a mission to
create living structures to accomplish two main goals:
permanently affordable and sustainable housing for lower income families and
2. Empower residents to make decisions and
cooperatively control and maintain their homes and communities
This mission originated from alarm at the rapidly depleting availability of
local affordable housing and absentee landlords who too often where subjecting residents to
poor and unsafe living conditions.
We believe that the egalitarian,
democratic values of the cooperative model address those two main goals and offer the best
opportunity for healthy, sustainable communities.
beginnings, Weaver Community Housing Association, a charitable, 501(c)3 non-profit, has become a
thriving, affordable housing organization with three unique,
cooperatively-run communities in Chapel Hill-Carrboro.
