In the past PTAA has been fortunate to team up with Housing Greensboro on two different occasions for our annual Labor of Love project and it has been a wonderful partnership. We’re excited to share the news of their name change to better reflect what they do for the community. From their press release:
The Board of Directors of the nonprofit organization formerly known as Housing Greensboro is proud to announce our new name – Community Housing Solutions. This change is a result of feedback from low-income homeowners and volunteers who said that our previous name was easily confused with other organizations in Greensboro. We are excited about the process we took to come up with the new name and how this will allow us to serve more people in our community through our home repair programs.
“The new name better reflects the essence of what we do in Greensboro.” states Gene Brown, President and Executive Director. “We believe that Community Housing Solutions will be a name that quickly connects people in need of our services or interested in supporting our work through volunteering or donations.” The organization has repaired more than 320 homes since 2005 for homeowners who could not physically or financially afford the work themselves. More than $3.7 million has been invested locally by Community Housing Solutions preserving affordable housing utilizing more than 40,000 volunteer hours to complete the work led by their skilled construction staff.
