AHC takes a holistic approach to affordable housing. We create innovative development strategies, manage our properties professionally and provide life-changing programs for residents.

During our 40 years of experience, we have developed a comprehensive strategy to provide high-quality living environments that help build stable and productive lives for our residents and their communities.


An integrated approach

Over the years, AHC has evolved to meet the needs of the changing marketplace and the communities we serve. Our multi-faceted approach, decades of expertise and dedicated staff have helped AHC become one of the largest affordable housing developers in the mid-Atlantic region. Our primary areas of expertise include:

Multifamily Development

Our multifamily development group includes seasoned professionals with decades of experience developing affordable housing. The senior management, project management and construction management team have approximately 150 years of combined experience developing multifamily units. In the last 15 years, the group has quadrupled the number of AHC units from 1,600 to over 6,500. Learn more.

Resident Services

AHC’s award-winning Resident Services program started more than 20 years ago simply to provide children with organized activities in the afternoons. Today the program provides a multitude of services for families, adults and senior citizens along with a multi-pronged education initiative for elementary-aged children all the way through high school.

Property Management

To ensure that our communities are well-maintained and managed, AHC created its own property management subsidiary, AHC Management LLC in 2000. Today the organization manages 32 properties in Maryland and Virginia. AHC Management’s team of professionals continually strives to make the living experience at our communities positive.
