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 7,000 families and 12,000 individuals to reach this goal.”
– Scott Dedman- Mountain Housing Opportunities Executive Director
