I am a 29 year old mother of 3 and I'm planning on relocating to Greensboro in September of this year. I have put in an application for public housing and have got accepted. I would like to know if anyone has any information about the public housing there. Is it liveable conditions, what about the neighborhoods, and how are the schools. Which one is the best out of all of them if any. I plan to visit in a month or so but I did want to get the heads up...........Thanks for any information given.....

Default Public Housing in Greensboro


I will try to give you some information on the public housing situation in Greensboro. There are 17 different communities under the control of the Greensboro Housing Authority. Out of those 17 communities, you would want to indicate on the wait list a preference for Laurel Oaks, Silver Briar or Baylor Court (scattered sites like these require you to be working).

Greensboro Housing Authority is very concerned and goes to great lengths to make its communities presentable and marketable to compete with the private market. Basically, they are a good corporate neighbor in Greensboro.

Having said that, there are some communities due to cliental living there I would not recommend. These would be Claremont Courts, Smith Homes and Pear Leaf.

I would recommend you contact Greensboro Housing to see if you can update your application stating a preference for Laurel Oaks, Silver Briar or Baylor Court. Now Greensboro Housing also is in a partnership with the city and has a very nice HOPE VI community in Willow Oaks. Those are new units requiring the tenants to be working or to acquire a job within a short timeframe. The community around that community is in a changing phase with older houses/buildings being torn down to be replaced with newer units.

Website for Greensboro Housing is Greensboro Housing Authority

Hope this helps. Here's to you in your new situation.....
