NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Real Households of New Hanover County took over the community Saturday. The Cape Fear Housing Coalition hosted its second affordable housing tour for residents.

The tour took residents around the Wilmington area to show off the growing amount of affordable housing. Groups looked at five different communities and single-family homes, including the SECU Lakeside Reserve.

The coalition says the goal is to show families that they have options, no matter their income.

“To show how families who earn lower than median income, still have a very nice home. and they deserve a very safe a decent place to live just like anybody else,” said Jody Wainio, from the Cape Fear Housing Coalition .

Waino says the need in Wilmington for affordable housing is sky rocketing. She also says that they cannot keep up with the demand, but they hope to add more homes every year.
