Housing for All Mount Pleasant

 

Creating Affordable Housing in the Town of Mount Pleasant, Settlement Communities,  Sweetgrass Basket Communities, & Surrounding Charleston County

Helping Individuals of All Ages &  Intergenerational Families

School Teachers & Administrators, Hospital Support Staff, Firefighters & Paramedics, Police, Hospitality workers and lets not forget our Seniors who have been lifelong Mount Pleasant residents.

They all serve as the backbone of our community, yet the rise in housing costs has made it virtually impossible for them to rent or purchase a new home. Gregorie Ferry Town has changed this in Mount Pleasant.    Homeowners here can not only build equity and wealth but also benefit from reduced traffic and eliminate commute times.

We turn home ownership dreams into reality.

Maybe you were raised in Mount Pleasant but now can’t afford to return to rent or buy a home. Maybe you have lived in Mount Pleasant your entire life, but your rent just increased $300 per month for the third year in a row. Maybe your children convinced you to sell your home, and now at 70 you are sleeping on your daughter’s couch. Maybe you have been working in Mount Pleasant for over 10 years driving 50 miles each way to and from work.


If you earn less than 120% Area Median Income ($77,160 for a family of 1) then please register for our Homebuyers Program by reading the directions which you must initial and completing the form, which you then email.
 

We calculate the demand for affordable housing in Mount Pleasant to be 1000 affordable homes and apartments. We are working to make this happen for all the workers, teachers, police, fire, and nurses in Mount Pleasant. We need you to register and if you can please donate to the Affordable Housing movement.

We turn affordable rentals into reality.

Creating affordable apartment rentals to $995 to $ 1499 per month with wrap-around activities such as  gardening,  cooking lessons,  health clinics,  space for art and music lessons.

We help existing home owners add housing for their family or generate additional income through Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs):

If you own a home in Mount Pleasant, the Settlement Communities or surrounding Charleston County, you may have a need to: 

  • Generate additional income via renting out an ADU. 

  • Dad divorces mom who is raising young children leaving her with nothing.

  • Help a daughter with children with an affordable rental ADU. 

  • Help a lifelong Mount Pleasant Senior who has been priced out of their community.

    • Adult children forced mom/dad to sell the family home and are now sleeping on their daughter's couch. 

  • Mom/Dad is living with abusive adult children. 

  • Alimony is coming to an end after 20 years and mom will lose her home.

  • Help a young Mount Pleasant working professional whose rent increased by $400 per month!

  • Living on $2000 per month fixed income after living their entire life in the Town of Mount Pleasant.

These are just a few of the stories we hear from Mount Pleasant residents.

Our Movement: What We Do

● Building Trust with our neighbors by listening to their and their intergenerational families housing needs. 

● Creating housing for 851 Town of Mount Pleasant employees and Mount Pleasant Teachers who cannot afford to live where they work unless they were born in Mount Pleasant and inherited the family home. 

● Meeting with employers to gather data on employee commutes and housing needs. Tracking the staffing shortage and its impact on revenue and customer service. 

● Grandma’s house has been sitting empty for years. Coaching families on how to renovate these homes for families in need of housing in Mount Pleasant. 

● Helping parents with permanently disabled adult children create long term housing for their adult children. 

● Helping families add Accessory Dwelling Units to their property (to generate additional income or help their adult children with housing) by working closely with the Town of Mount Pleasant and Charleston County’s planning and zoning departments. 

● Work with Affordable Housing Developers to connect them with development opportunities and with land owned by the Town of Mount Pleasant and Mount Pleasant Water Works 
which may be available for affordable housing development.

● Working with Mount Pleasant financial institutions (banks) to help with financing affordable homes (mortgages); help the banks meet their Community Reinvestment Act requirements for affordable community development ; and examine bank owned real estate to repurpose for affordable housing. 

● Create discussion and dialogue between the Planning Departments of The Town of Mount Pleasant, the City of Charleston, Charleston County and North Charleston. The Municipalities Committee was created by our deceased founding Board Member Thomasena Stokes-Marshall.
