Who We Are
Staff & Board Members | Awards & Recognitions
Guilford County Homeownership Center (GCHC) was established in 2004 as a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization and implements financial literacy classes to residents in Greensboro and High Point, North Carolina.
GCHC has been successful in helping families obtain the tools and support needed to become self-sufficient and to maintain self-sufficiency. For example, program graduates from our partnership with the High Point Community Development and Housing Department saved approximately $3,600 while eliminating $3,400 in debt, paid off two automobiles, and rejected over $49,000 in new credit card offers.
We are the only non-profit in Guilford County offering an innovative DVD-led teaching tool that focuses on financial accountability and structure. Families are actively involved in the decision-making process that affects their lives and are given tools to reverse the negative attitudes and behaviors that imprison in a cycle of financial mismanagement. This ability offers hope and turns an uncertain future into one of great promise.
Our goal is to increase affordable homeownership opportunities in Guilford County. This expansion will occur in concert with GCHC's Individual Development Account (IDA) Program funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Assets for Independence Program.
We are also an advocate for and work directly with those Guilford County residents to protect them from home foreclosure.
As a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Center, GCHC realizes the importance of one to one individual counseling and coaching, thus we offer this service with many of our programs.
We also capitalize on our existing partnerships and work with other nonprofits in our community to facilitate and ensure that our program participants acquire the requisite skills to move towards long-term, economic self-sufficiency.
