Forest-Peirce Project Ribbon Cutting

On Thursday, November 5th, HCA celebrated the completion of ten more affordable units to add to our housing stock. We were thrilled to show neighbors, lenders, tenants, and other guests around the Forest-Peirce Project site.

Here are some HCA friends exploring the property:
