The agency's overall goal is to improve the quality of life in our community.

There are several issues that have to be actively addressed to achieve the overall goal. In the organization's Strategic Plan, there are provisions to improve housing quality standards for seniors and families in the extremely low to moderate income range. We also undertake targeting the existing housing stock, ultimately increasing the amount of affordable rentals and providing home retention opportunities to program participants through counseling.

Comprehensive housing counseling activities will serve as a catalyst to assist homeowners in financial crisis, increasing the success rate of maintaining ownership. Finally, the agency will work with community groups to address youth and academic issues and the municipality to help build a concrete tax base by encouraging businesses to locate in the area. These efforts will assist in the reversal of blighted conditions and promote achievements that will cultivate a positive quality of life.
