Safe & Affordable
Access to longer-term housing that is safe and affordable for women, men and their children is a critical part of empowering survivors to recover from their experiences with violence. When they are ready to leave a shelter, support for quick access to new safe and affordable housing can help to:
- Decrease the burden of economic hardship, housing instability, and uncertainty as they focus on safety for themselves and their children, and other essential needs (i.e. employment, health, legal issues).
- Create alternatives to remaining in abusive homes.
- Reduce the risks of being re-victimized by abusers (National Alliance to End Homelessness, 2011).
Dunn Housing Authority is dedicated to providing equal housing opportunities without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability. If you feel your fair housing rights may have been violated, you may file a complaint by calling 1-800-669-9777.
The Dunn Housing Authority maintenance staff responds to resident requests for repairs between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. If the work order repair is due to normal wear and tear the resident will not be charged. If the resident, guest, member of the household or visitor is responsible for the damage or other problem a charge will be posted to the rental account of the lease holder. All calls for work order repairs are done by priority and responded to in the order of urgency. Residents should call 910-892-5076 to request a work order. Repairs are not allowed unless a request has been made at the Administrative Office. Emergency calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. For emergency or after-hours maintenance requests, you may call 910-890-7524. Please call ONLY in case of an Emergency, otherwise you may be billed for the call. Emergency calls are considered repairs that cannot wait until the next working day. It is very important to provide your name, address, a call back number and the nature of the problem. If the emergency is life threatening, immediately call 911.
