Arlington Housing Corporation (AHC Inc.)
AHC Inc. (originally Arlington Housing Corp.) is a not-for-profit developer of affordable housing communities for families, individuals, and seniors with low-incomes in the Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Baltimore region. We build stability and opportunity through social services and year-round educational programs including Afterschool literacy activities, Teen Tutoring, College & Career Readiness, and a Summer Camp to prevent learning loss. All funds collected through the Combined Federal Campaign and other workplace campaigns are used for these Resident Services programs.
Families and individuals with low-income households including hard-working service people, teachers, police officers, and immigrants struggle to afford the skyrocketing cost of housing in the Washington metropolitan region. As it has for over 45 years, AHC dedicates its efforts to ensuring safe, decent affordable housing for all our neighbors. And because our community centers are located right in our apartment complexes, our education programs and access to social services is an active, vibrant part of the communities we serve.
AHC's Resident Services impacts 3,000 residents of all ages each year.
Education programs focus primarily on education/youth development, helping children from elementary through high school - build the literacy and academic skills they need to achieve scholastic success. We believe the children and teens are the key to improving the future economic stability of the many families who live at our apartment communities.
Year after year, all of the seniors in AHC's program graduate from high school, and the majority continue on to college - often the first in their families to achieve that milestone. More than 200 children and teens attend our school year and summer programs on a daily basis.
Social Services are resident-driven and focus on health/wellness, financial resilience, and community building and engagement.
Based in Arlington, VA, AHC was founded in 1975 as Arlington Housing Corporation. Since then we have developed over 54 apartment communities in the region serving more than 7,000 individuals and families.
