What We Can Do for You
Your forever home is waiting for you.
We've served Eastern Kentucky families for over 25 years. As a nonprofit affordable housing provider, we've built nearly 300 new homes, made 700 home repairs and renovations, and constructed 35 affordable rental homes for low-income mountain people. Our work is made possible by the generosity of funders, donors, supporters, and volunteers.
In the hills of southeastern Kentucky, we're raised to look out for and take care of each other. Our programs and services are provided not as a hand out, but as a hand up to hard-working mountain people determined to give themselves and their families a better life.
Where We Serve
HDA's programs and services are available to individuals and families living in Breathitt, Knott, Leslie, and Perry counties in Eastern Kentucky. Occasionally, funding is available for us to provide services in Floyd County.
What We Do
Our programs and services primarily serve low-income people in Eastern Kentucky. Recently, we've also begun a pilot program to offer "open market" home repairs to middle-income folks who fall just above the guidelines for our "income-based" programs. Additionally, the homes built by our Hope Building trainees are sold on the open market.
The HDA Homeownership Program helps low-income individuals and families achieve their dreams of owning a new home. Our Housing Counselor works with you to get you ready to become a new homeowner and manage your home successfully.
Our Home Repair Program provides home-saving and home-improving repairs for low-income folks. All repairs and renovations are made by our professional and experienced construction crews. Repair work ranges from small projects to renovations.
Affordable Rental Homes
We build homes for rent in desirable locations. These homes follow our standards of being high quality, safe and secure, and affordable. We are working to add more rental units, so contact us for more info on what we have available.

If you need Credit Counseling, we work with Redbud Financial Alternatives to get you the help you need. We'll work with you to get your finances in order so that you can own a home.
Home Energy Audits
Paying too much for utilities? Our Heat Squad can perform a low-cost energy audit at your home to find out the best means of saving you money on heating and cooling. Then, if you qualify, we'll work on installing the upgrades you need!

Are you in recovery but can't find a job? Our Hope Building Program provides you the opportunity to have paid, on-the-job training in construction. You'll learn, grow, and build your resume in this unique, life-changing program.
Would you like to take a more active hand in helping HDA do its work? Are you interested in learning or testing your construction skills on one of our work sites? Whether you're helping your neighbors in Eastern Kentucky or visiting from outside Appalachia to serve others, we welcome you to work alongside our construction crews as we make life a lot brighter for our families and communities. With us, the difference you'll make can be seen and felt for generations.
