Our Mission is to provide decent, affordable housing and community development (which is religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational in nature) for the low and moderate income citizens of Weakley County and West Tennessee.
HOPE of Martin is…
We hold these values very dear and they can be found in both our projects and normal day-to-day operations. We base everything we do on these values, because at the end of the day, we are not just building a house; we are building a HOME. There is a difference and we understand that.
Since HOPE of Martin CDC was incorporated in December 2002, we have completed 12 units in Martin, along with an administrative office and common area. We have also expanded in Union City and have completed 8 units which include a three bedroom single family home and a studio apartment.
Hope of Martin receives funding from NSP/HUD, THDA, HAC and Federal Home Loan Bank due to our 501 (c)(3) non-profit status and our mission to develop underserved communities. We have also received additional funding and in-kind services from the City of Martin, the City of Union City and Obion County.
Above all, we could not serve our communities without the support and donations from community members. All donations are tax deductible.
How do we improve the community?
HOPE of Martin renovates and redevelops houses to provide families a place to call home.
- We only hire licensed contractors through a bidding process to perform the necessary work on each property.
- We accept only the best and it shows on both the inside and outside of our units.
- We don’t believe in mass, apartment-style housing. We want our tenants to be part of the neighborhood and community.
- Our tenants are part of the community with neighbors, a front yard, and all the amenities a home has to offer.
Equal Housing Opportunity
Hope of Martin maintains compliance with Federal law which prohibits housing discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability.
