Arlington Housing Corporation (AHC Inc.)
Arlington Housing Corporation (AHC Inc.) is a not-for-profit developer of affordable housing in the mid-Atlantic region. Hardworking low- and moderate-income workers including service people, teachers, police officers, and immigrants from many lands struggle to afford the skyrocketing cost of housing in the Washington-Baltimore metropolitan region. As it has for the past 40 years, AHC dedicates its efforts to ensuring safe, decent affordable housing for all our neighbors. Along with quality housing, we provide educational programs for the low- and moderate-income families who live in our affordable apartment communities. All funds collected through the Combined Federal Campaign and other workplace campaigns are used for these Resident Services programs in Arlington. Because our community centers are located right in our apartment complexes, our education programs are an active, vibrant part of the communities we serve. AHC's programs focus primarily on helping children - all the way 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. With more than 20 years of experience, the program's consistency and stability really works. 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. Last year, AHC served 2,000 children, teens and adults at least one time through the Resident Services program at seven community centers. More than 200 children and teens attended our school year and summer programs on a daily basis. Based in Arlington, VA, AHC was founded in 1975 as Arlington Housing Corporation. Since then we have developed 53 apartment communities in the region serving more than 7,300 individuals and families.
