About

AHC Inc. is among the largest developers of affordable and mixed-income housing in the Washington-Baltimore metro region. Since its founding 40 years ago in Arlington, VA, AHC Inc. has developed nearly 7,000 quality affordable homes to help families and individuals build stable lives and strong futures. As the need for affordable housing has grown, AHC Inc. has expanded beyond our Arlington roots to also serve communities in Montgomery County, Baltimore, Washington, DC, Alexandria and Fairfax County. We provide homes for more than 18,000 people. Each year, our Resident Services program supports thousands of children, families and senior citizens through on-site programs. Our continued growth could not have happened without our many dedicated and enthusiastic supporters, donors, volunteers, community groups, and business and government partners.

AHC's Arlington Resident Services program began more than 20 years ago and focuses primarily on comprehensive education programs for elementary through high school students. The program also provides community connections and onsite programs to help adults strengthen their economic stability and build stronger futures for themselves and their families.

AHC’s Teen Program for middle and high school students exists to:

* Encourage academic achievement and the identification and development of personal assets and life skills among the students participating

* Encourage the motivation and engagement in learning necessary for students to view their school experiences as positive and productive and see themselves as the shapers of their future

* Encourage college as a viable option for most students after high school and support students who do not plan to attend college to pursue other productive options

* Provide a safe, caring environment where nurturing relationships with adults and other youth build self-confidence and strong social skills.
