Atrium Health recognizes that our teammates are our most valuable asset and is reimagining health by recognizing that safe, affordable and secure housing is one of the most important components of a healthy life. Intervention improves health outcomes & decreases health costs. Affordable housing also serves as a key part of Atrium Health’s social impact in surrounding communities.
Housing Opportunity Promoting Equity (H.O.P.E.) is Atrium Health's affordable housing investment program designed especially for our teammates. The H.O.P.E Housing program allows eligible teammates access to affordable housing. Units are available to rent at a sliding-scale rate based on income for eligible teammates and their families. H.O.P.E Housing offerings are currently only available in Mecklenburg County. We offer H.O.P.E. to support our teammates to continue to do what they do best every day –- improve health, elevate hope and advance healing – FOR ALL.
