PHDA Workshops & Programs: Serving a Purpose

PHDA workshops and programs are the primary way we fulfill our mission to empower low to moderate income residents to become home owners in their community as stakeholders, strengthening their neighborhood, and improving quality of life. Each of our workshops and programs serves one or more of our key objectives:

  1. increase the number of low and moderate income residents who are able to become successful first-time homebuyers
  2. increase the supply and accessibility of affordable housing for low and moderate income residents
  3. develop residential properties and conditions that have the potential to stimulate reinvestment in transitional neighborhoods
  4. rehabilitate existing housing stock to produce affordable homes of exceptional quality and energy efficiency
