 Lancaster-based HDC MidAtlantic (HDC) has taken over third-party property management of seven affordable communities, totaling 300 apartments, in Maryland and Delaware owned by Maryland-based non-profit Homes for America.  

This partnership, which began in September, leverages the strengths of both organizations to serve residents and maintain the communities they call home, HDC said. 

These communities are Pocomoke Landing in Pocomoke City, Maryland; Parkside Village Apartments, Glenburn Garden House, and Hudson Townhomes in Cambridge, Maryland; James E. Leonard Apartments in Salisbury, Maryland; Shiloh House Apartments in Hurlock, Maryland; and Elizabeth Cornish Landing in Bridgeville, Delaware.  

“Residents are at the heart of our mission, and high-quality property management services have been central to HDC’s work since its founding in 1971. We envision a world where everyone has a safe, affordable place to call home,” said Dana Hanchin, President and CEO of HDC. “We know that Homes for America shares this vision, and this is why we are thrilled to work together in serving residents in this region. 

Homes for America, one of the largest nonprofit developers in the region, does not provide property management services and was in search of an organization to maintain their affordable communities, HDC said. 

“At Homes for America, we seek to provide great housing and to create communities that enhance the lives of residents,” said Homes for America President and CEO Dana Johnson. “We are pleased to work with HDC MidAtlantic—a partner that shares our respect for residents and our vision of housing that contributes to resident health and opportunities. We look forward to forging a strong partnership in the years to come.” 

HDC and Homes for America are both members of the Housing Partnership Network, a collection of 100 nonprofit housing developers, owners, and financial institutions throughout the United States. 

HDC also manages two other communities in Maryland—Hartley Hall Senior Housing and Newtowne Apartments in Pocomoke City.
