Welcome Home

Our mission is to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing even during a pandemic to citizens on low - to - moderate income. Since our inception in 1935, the Housing Authority of the City of Charleston has provided assistance to tens of thousands of families. Every single night, over 4,000 households, roughly 9.2% of the population of the City of Charleston, are occupied by families who receive housing assistance through our Agency.

A message from our President/Chief Executive Officer:

The Housing Authority of the City of Charleston was born of action on December 18, 1934 by a vote of the Charleston City Council. However, the actual permission for such a "creation" came via statute in the South Carolina General Assembly in March of 1934.

We have come a long way in our society, our City and our personal relationships. Nevertheless, the need for Public housing still exists today. We have so much more to do before we can truly say, the job is done.
