HDGHA Seeking Vendors
We are primarily seeking vendors to assist with property maintenance. As a non-profit entity with a limited budget, quality and value are our primary considerations. To learn more about procedures and policies and to download a Vendor Application form, visit the new Doing Business with HDGHA page

Security Updates Coming
Our Somerset Manor community is already one of the safest neighborhoods in Havre de Grace…and Havre de Grace is one of the Safest Cities in Maryland
. But any area and any home can be vulnerable to crime. In order to further protect residents, in 2017 HDGHA will be updating our security systems via RFP bidding. Look for announcements about this upgrade on our website soon.
Housing Waiting List Open
The waiting list is open for our 1 to 5 bedroom units. Our community is a safe, affordable and family oriented place to live. In addition, HDGHA offers a wide range of FREE programs and services all geared to guide residents to financial independence, including our Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program.
