Attention All Residents of HACW

Please understand that maintenance services including after‐hours emergency service may be affected during the hurricane. In the event of a true life‐threatening emergency, such as a fire, please call 911. For all other maintenance calls that are non‐ life threatening, please call our office 919 -269-6404.  Service requests will be responded to as soon as it is safe to do so.  Please only call for TRUE emergencies.   

If you are new to your neighborhood, this is a great time to introduce yourself to your neighbors.  It is during times like these that we see the best in people; during these times there are heroic and kind acts (seen and unseen) that people do for complete strangers  with nothing expected in return.    

Please remember that in extreme weather events such as this, our staff may be experiencing the same situations you are, so thank  you in advance for your  patience and understanding.  Please understand that we must follow the same instructions of local authorities if given.  Please stay tuned to the local news in our area.  

It is our sincere hope that you and your family will be safe.  Please check this website and our facebook page for any updates.

Warm Regards,
