About Us

We believe home shouldn’t be an impossible dream; it should be an attainable reality. We are resident advocates, trusted developers, property managers, community partners, and collaborators. We are part of the fabric of our towns and cities, and have been working with our neighbors since 1971 to create real change and meaningful connections.

As champions of the greater good, we are committed to advancing equity, we open the door to opportunities, and we build homes that we can all be proud of.

HDC owns and/or manages 3,400 apartments, providing housing that is safe and affordable to those with lower incomes, focusing on seniors, families, and individuals living with disabilities. Serving nearly 5,000 residents in 72 communities located in urban, suburban, and rural areas across Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, HDC builds hope and opportunity for all residents to reach their full potential by creating, preserving, and strengthening affordable housing communities.

For HDC, the next five years will be a period of change that centers on people and partnerships, characterized by strategic risk-taking, systems change, sustained growth, and continued financial strength.

HDC MidAtlantic is a charter member of NeighborWorks America, a network of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations across the United States, including the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Network organizations serve diverse populations in large and small, and rural and urban communities. Organizations are rigorously assessed against various organizational, financial and board governance standards and must maintain certain standards to remain within the network. The network focuses on collaboration through peer sharing and ongoing professional development, so each group can improve and the community development field as a whole can benefit.

HDC MidAtlantic is a member of the Housing Partnership Network (HPN). HPN is a network of 100 top-performing, high-capacity nonprofit housing developers, owners and financial institutions throughout the United States. As leaders in the field, HPN members have built a network and a group of innovative social enterprises that deliver powerful results for the people and communities served. Through the network, members leverage collective talent, market power, and business innovation to achieve more together than could be done acting alone. 

HDC MidAtlantic is a Certified Organization for Resident Engagement & Services (CORES), by the Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF). The CORES certification recognizes affordable housing owners that have developed a robust commitment, capacity, and competency in providing resident services coordination in affordable rental homes.
