HRHA Vision 2030 Adopted by HRHA Board of Commissioner June 8, 2013

The following statement represents the Vision for the Hopewell Redevelopment Authority as it will be in the Year 2030, in concert with the 2030 Vision statement of the City of Hopewell, Virginia:

In 2030 the Hopewell Redevelopment and Housing Authority will be the primary agency responsible for Affordable Housing in the Tri-Cities area.

In becoming the Tri-Cities primary agency for housing development the Authority will successfully redevelop all former public housing in Hopewell into modern, attractive affordable housing.

The City of Hopewell will use the Housing Authority (or a new name which reflects our new role; i.e., Housing Development Authority, Redevelopment Authority, Development Authority, etc.) to demolish and replace the dilapidated and obsolete housing found through Hopewell in the 2015 to 2020 timeframe.

After gaining sufficient footing in the redevelopment of Hopewell Housing, the HRHA will seek opportunities outside of Hopewell and into the tri-cities. 

HRHA will offer its services to municipalities in addition to City of Hopewell.  Services offered will be expected to include the following:

  • Organizational Development, especially for small to medium sized PHAs
  • Executive Team leadership and developmentExecutive Management processes and tools
  • Executive philosophy of management
  • Vision development and implementation
  • Program Management for the Affordable Housing sector
  • Property Management
  • Housing Choice Programs
  • Resident Services
  • Customer Service Creed

HRHA aims to provide exceptional customer service both internally and externally. Our customer base includes employees, residents, applicants, stakeholders, and partners. Through responsible leadership, teamwork and collaboration we are a catalyst for positive change in the community.

We provide housing service for the continuum of housing needs.
