About US

  • Background

The HomeOwnership Center, Inc. (HOC) began as a program of the Randolph County Housing Authority (RCHA). Over a decade ago RCHA joined the NeighborWorks Organization, a community-based network of Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (NRC), by becoming a member of its West Virginia affiliate, CommunityWorks in West Virginia, Inc. (CWVI). HOC was created with the support of CWVI and its member organizations. Having gained expertise in counseling, underwriting, and construction, RCHA chartered a nonprofit homeownership center in 1998 to become a one-stop-shop for homeowners and homeownership. HOC became a legally independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. HOC applied to NRC for membership in the NeighborWorks network and received a charter in 2001. In 2002 HOC joined the NeighborWorks Campaign for Home Ownership and also became a designated NeighborWorks HomeOwnership Center. In 2003 the new NeighborWorks HomeOwnership Center, Inc., of Elkins, WV officially opened its doors in a new location as it moved from its former shared space within the RCHA building.

  • Mission

The center was envisioned as a consumer friendly vehicle for providing training, counseling and financing to low-to-moderate income families and first-time homebuyers, as well as a source of continuing support for existing homeowners. HOCís products and services are offered to consumers at all income levels. The mission of HOC is to promote safe, affordable housing, focusing on sustainable homeownership, self-sufficiency, sound environments, healthy quality of life and communities that can sustain these values.
