Nearly 50 Years of Experience, Strong Community Partnerships, & Innovative Development Strategies

Our Mission

The residents of Affordable Homes & Communities are at the heart of all we do. We build opportunity by creating quality homes with holistic resident services. We drive change through innovation, genuine partnerships, and responsible investment.

Our Vision

A world where all people share the same opportunities regardless of income, race or other qualities; where housing is integral to a healthy, welcoming, and equitable society; and where affordable homes are available to all.

Service Together

AHC approaches our work with empathy and compassion, recognizing the dignity of people. We empower residents and collaborate with community partners and stakeholders.

Our Beliefs
  • Diverse, integrated communities are resilient communities. Everyone benefits when communities include a mix of incomes, a balance of uses, and a variety of life experiences.

  • Residents are the experts of their own lives, know their strengths best, and are best positioned to determine what they need to live the lives they want to live.

  • Residents are strong and hold power – they want to be heard and included in all stages and phases of our work to ensure that it is successful and impactful.

  • Affordable housing is critical economic and social infrastructure. It is a platform for economic mobility, transformation, and human development.

  • Housing is a basic human right and stable housing is the foundation of a good life. Safe and affordable housing helps our residents stabilize and thrive. 

  • Poverty is not a choice nor a reflection of a person’s character or intelligence. Income inequality is rooted in systems of discrimination and oppression.
