ABOUT PIEDMONT HOUSING ALLIANCE
Piedmont Housing Alliance’s mission is to create affordable housing opportunities and foster community through education, lending, and development. We are the backbone affordable housing organization in the region and operate through a collaborative approach as evidenced through a broad range of partnerships from new housing development to recently jointly opening Charlottesville’s first Financial Opportunity Center. Our work reflects our core values of Equity, Opportunity, Home, Community, and Respect. Over the last five years, Piedmont Housing has increasingly deepened its focus on racial equity as a primary lens for the organization’s work – internally, programmatically, and through advocacy - and we strive to become an anti-racist organization.
We define anti-racism as a practice – a continual, active effort to identify, evaluate, and dismantle the beliefs and structures that perpetuate racism.
