AHC congratulates the 31 amazing young people who participated in our College and Career Readiness program this year. All graduated from high school and are off to college in the fall – the first generation in their family to achieve this milestone. In total, they were accepted into 135 schools and received an estimated $1.24 million in scholarships and aid. We are deeply appreciative of all the mentors, volunteers and partners who helped them achieve their dreams.
Thirty-year AHC Inc. veteran Hanh Nguyen has dedicated her life to helping others. Over the course of the past four decades, Hanh has left an indelible impact on AHC, the people she worked with, and the many residents who continue to benefit from her generous spirit.
The murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor are deeply horrific – and are only the most recent atrocities in our nation’s long history of systemic racism. As an organization dedicated to providing affordable and stable homes for people in need, AHC Inc. does not tolerate racial injustice. AHC is committed to standing up against racism in all its forms and listening to and supporting our colleagues, neighbors, residents, and partners.
During Volunteer Appreciation Month, we celebrate the 400 volunteers who provided more than 6,000 hours this year to residents in our affordable apartment communities. That includes 23 dedicated individuals who have volunteered for more than five years and 68 volunteers from 20+ different businesses and groups.
AHC is partnering with Rosie Riveters, a nonprofit dedicated to engaging and inspiring girls ages 4 to 14 in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and Amazon to deliver curated STEM kits for girls to participate in hands-on STEM learning from home.
