Homeownership

HDA's income-based Homeownership Program helps low-income individuals and families living in Breathitt, Knott, Leslie, and Perry counties in East Kentucky become new homeowners. Prospective homeowners who qualify for our program receive Housing Counseling to prepare them for homeownership and contribute over 100 hours of sweat equity in the construction of their homes. HDA has made the homeownership dreams of over 300 East Kentucky families come true across its 27-year history.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Focus groups or interviews (by phone or in person), Community meetings/Town halls, Phone Calls/Surveys,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We conducted a series of community meetings within the last year in each of our counties and discovered that we were doing a poor job of informing the public outside of Perry County about our services. In response, we have devised a marketing outreach campaign to address that issue in each county we serve. Additionally, we discovered that Big Creek Ministries, a local volunteer group, is the go-to service for home repairs in Leslie County, but the chief need in that county is affordable new home construction, which we need to be offering more of to families living there. We reached out to low-income families in that county via Facebook and immediately received over 40 new applications for our Homeownership Program.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board, Our funders, Our community partners, Community leaders,

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don't have any major challenges to collecting feedback,
