Mission & Vision

Mountain Housing Opportunities is a private, non-profit community development corporation whose mission is to build and improve homes, neighborhoods, communities, and lives, and build hope and dignity in the people we serve.

“We believe that if you work in Asheville or Buncombe County, you should be able to live in this community in a safe, attractive, affordable home in a good neighborhood – and when you retire or if you become disabled, this should still be true. Since 1988, MHO has assisted over 4,800 families and individuals to reach this goal.” – Scott Dedman- MHO Executive Director

Mountain Housing will continue to expand and improve our services to meet the critical needs of Asheville and Buncombe County residents.  We know that more than 10,000 Buncombe County households struggle to afford a safe, attractive home in a good neighborhood.  MHO serves more than 600 households each year and builds an average of more than 60 new homes each year.
