VISION: We envision a healthy, sustainable Hancock County with diverse housing options for a vibrant economy.

MISSION: Hancock County Housing Resource Center provides comprehensive coordination for the planning and implementation of county and municipal housing activities and services.

Description:
The Hancock Housing Resource Center (HRC) provides resources and technical assistance to Hancock County residents by improving the conditions of the housing stock after Hurricane Katrina, replacing damaged houses and vacant properties with new housing, and creating new affordable homeownership opportunities.
Originally, the HRC began as a response to Katrina related needs with help from faith-based and volunteers efforts.
Now, the focus is on long-term housing needs for Hancock County and will include financial and homeowner counseling services, and government and federal funding for rebuilding. The Resource Center will coordinate with programs such as the Coming Home Collaborative, Mississippi Alternative Housing Program, and the new REACH program that provides employer-assisted down payments for prospective homeowners.
HRC works in partnership with local and state government representatives, affordable housing advocates and producers, local lending institutions, human service providers and interested citizens within Hancock County.
The HRC has also implemented a partnership with the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio ("GCCDS") which is a project of Mississippi State University's School of Architecture. GCCDS provides design assistance to low income households seeking to rebuild. The projects are designed through close relationships with the residents and HHRC staff, and the work reflects a priority on preserving the dignity of individuals.
