Supporting Community Preservation

Southern Hills Preservation Corporation is a Rural Preservation Company (RPC) serving Southern Onondaga County, New York.


Established as a private, nonprofit organization in 1986, Southern Hills provides needed housing services to low and moderate income residents of Southern Onondaga County.

​With rural characteristics, modest incomes, and a scattered population, we've assisted hundreds of households in Southern Onondaga county for over 30 years. 

Our housing programs and services include grants for home repairs and to help first time buyers purchase a home. We are also a HUD certified housing counseling agency and provide a variety of housing counseling and financial coaching services.


The agency was formed with the assistance and guidance of P.E.A.C.E., Inc., the county’s human services agency. SHPC's Board of Directors set goals, oversees finances, and works with staff to carry out programs.
Southern Onondaga County was targeted as the focus of the agency's activities because of its rural characteristics, modest average incomes, and scattered population. Although the trend toward suburbanization in the 1970s and 1980s has left its mark on southern Onondaga County, the area retains close ties to agriculture.


​Southern Hills' service area encompasses the Towns of Fabius, LaFayette, Marcellus, Onondaga, Otisco,
Pompey,  Skaneateles, Spafford and Tully.

​Since 1986 we have completed more than 360 projects in our service area, investing more than $5 million in our community!


Through a grassroots approach and word of mouth campaign, Southern Hills continues to invest in our community neighbor to neighbor, one family at a time. 

Our programs promote community sustainability and will continue to make Southern Onondaga county a great place to live for years to come. We couldn't do it without individual contributors and volunteers like you!
