In December 2012, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates merged to create SAHA, an organization dedicated to providing quality, service-enriched affordable housing to East Bay residents.


Speak Farsi and want to help other Farsi-speakers in your community? Help interpret for our Farsi-speaking residents who often struggle with social isolation and lonliness due to a lack of communication. We want all our residents to be supported, and we can't accomplish that without your help!

ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM: SAHA's Volunteer Program is managed by the Volunteer Coordinator, who supports volunteers and supplies all materials needed for the activity. Please note that we are only able to accommodate those with M-F 9AM-5PM availability, with the exception of some One-Time Events. In the interest of offering consistent social activities for our residents, we expect that volunteers will offer activities weekly or twice a month at a regular time and day. Residents greatly appreciate and look forward these activities as well as enjoying the company of volunteers who make them possible. Please sign up today!

ABOUT SAHA: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is committed to providing quality, service-enriched, affordable housing to East Bay residents. By offering consistent, volunteer-led programing, we hope to build community at each of our properties, providing accessible socialization alternatives and allowing our senior residents to age in place.
