Nazareth Housing Development Corporation exists to encourage, facilitate, and develop housing for low and moderate income families in Summit County.
The efforts and offerings of Nazareth Housing Development Corporation are provided in a manner that supports and encourages self-respect, dignity, and self-sufficiency among those served.
How We Started
Nazareth Housing Development Corporation is a faith-inspired, 501(c)(3) non-profit, community housing developer engaged in the planning, development, and construction of single family homes.
The organization was inspired by Bishop Anthony M. Pilla and guided by the pastors of St Hilary, St Vincent, St. Sebastian, and Immaculate Conception Catholic Churches.
NHDC was incorporated September 1999 and recognized by the state of Ohio as a community housing development organization (CHDO) in September 2002.
Nazareth’s first groundbreaking took place on August 21, 2002, and since then Nazareth has built or rehabbed over 100 houses. Nazareth works across all faith communities.
How We Operate
At Nazareth Housing, we strive to understand each individual family’s specific housing needs and to revitalize the neighborhood communities in which we build. Nazareth endeavors to foster a diverse environment in which the differences and talents of all persons with whom we work, partner, and serve are essential to our success. We collaborate with local vendors, subcontractors, local financial institutions, HUD certified home-buyer’s education providers, the County of Summit, and the City of Akron to keep the cost of homes and housing repairs affordable.
We create value in housing by successful business relationships, adhering to tight construction processes to keep costs down, building homes that are of excellent quality, and by listening to the specific needs of each family.
Why Should I Choose a Nazareth Home?
There are many superb reasons to work with Nazareth housing to purchase your first home. The first, of course, is the large amount of subsidy available to eligible home-buyers which makes housing costs extremely affordable. Here are a few more:
Nazareth is a faith-inspired non-profit whose mission is to help low and moderate income families and individuals with affordable housing and hoe repairs–in other words, helping you with safe and affordable housing is just what we do!
Once you sign a purchase agreement with Nazareth (and depending on which stage of construction the home is in) Nazareth is able to provide our home-buyers with choices, such paint, flooring, siding, counter top, and many other choices so that your new home is the way you like it.
Our homes are built or rehabbed with high quality and affordability by local reputable contractors and suppliers.
Our vision is that all people will live in housing that is adequate to their needs, affordable to their incomes, and satisfying to pride.
Our vision is that by eliminating blighted and inadequate housing and replacing it with safe, well-constructed, new and rehabilitated homes, we will be planting the seeds that will help give rebirth and revitalization to those neighborhoods affected.
Our vision is that those neighborhoods will become the seeds that revitalize the city and county, by revitalizing and re-energizing the people who have been helped.
Our dream is that those people, revitalized now by the satisfaction of one of humanity’s most basic needs– housing –will themselves dream and reach their full potential as human beings.
