Mission Statement

The mission of Milford Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) is to provide decent, safe, and affordable housing solutions to people of modest mean. At MHDC our homes are more than just a physical structure; they are what bind our families, friends, and communities together.

Description

Milford Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) is a value-driven, nonprofit affordable housing developer and program provider, offering a full-continuum of housing-related services to meet the needs of the community. The agency is known for an open-minded approach, commitment to quality, and caring passion for client and staff alike.

MHDC was founded in 1977 by group of local concerned citizens who saw a dire need for affordable housing in the community. Like other nonprofits, the agency was led only by a volunteer, yet dedicated board of directors for many years. In 1994, the agency hired its first employee and growth quickly began. Within three years, MHDC had completed development of its first affordable, senior rental complex. During this same time, MHDC became the first and only Delaware-recipient of the Self-Help Housing Program award from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development (USDA RD). Since then, MHDC has grown into Delaware’s leading nonprofit provider of affordable housing.
