CRM Service Areas
CRM helps Low-Income Homeowners in Bertie, Chown, and Washington Counties.
Achieve Asset Security – Restoring the security of homeownership empowers people to transform their lives. It is a solid step upward, away from the stresses, health concerns, and high energy costs that accompany living in substandard dwellings. It is a base for attaining personal wealth and maintaining generations-old property.
Benefits to Individuals - Elderly can age-in-place; the physical and mental health of affected family members improves; those with disabilities experience a better quality of life through safe access; youth educational performance improves because of better household conditions.
County Housing Statistics Improve - County and Municipal Governments provide CRM with the evidence that shows the number of low-income homeowners and the threats they are facing. Every rural county can point to areas where blight, dilapidated and unsafe structures, and crime dot areas previously occupied by homeowners. Where population loss occurs business closures soon follow.
