About The HomeOwnership Center

Our History

The HomeOwnership Center began as a program of the Randolph County Housing Authority (RCHA), but became a separate, legally independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in June 1998.

In 2001, we became a chartered member of NeighborWorks America, joining a national network of more than 200 non-profit organizations focused on affordable homeownership and community development.

In 2002, we became a chartered NeighborWorks America HomeOwnership Center, to better serve prospective home buyers and home owners. We are one of about 100 centers nationwide, but the only one in West Virginia.

In 2003, we moved from shared space within the RCHA building to our own building on Randolph Ave. in Elkins.

In 2013, we celebrated our 15th anniversary of incorporation. Read a list of our recent accomplishments.
