The Better Housing Coalition (BHC) changes lives and transforms communities through high-quality, affordable housing.

As the Richmond region’s largest non-profit Community Development Corporation, BHC takes a collaborative approach to neighborhood revitalization and develops homes that attract residents of mixed incomes. We are driven by respect for residents, sustaining the environment and preserving neighborhood character. Our portfolio includes 15 affordable multi-family rental communities – eight for lower-income seniors – and 180 single-family homes built (or renovated) and sold to low- to moderate-income first-time homebuyers. Our community social work programs, which are 100% funded by philanthropic gifts, help seniors age in place, help children aspire to higher education, and help adults gain self-sufficiency.
