Salisbury Housing Committee

Voices from our community about the housing needed for a healthy, economically vibrant future.

The Salisbury Housing Committee has been committed to securing and managing low-income rental housing in the Salisbury area since the 1970s, when local churches banded together to create Faith House, six one-bedroom apartments in the East Meadow community. We continue to own and manage Faith House and have added two additional two-bedroom units at East Meadow.
