Mission Statement

AHIP believes that everyone should be safe at home. Since 1976, greater Charlottesville’s home repair nonprofit has helped our neighbors in need with critical repairs and rehabs--keeping their homes safe, healthy, and affordable. Last year, AHIP and our supporters helped 324 people stay safe at home.

Description

AHIP was born out of recovery efforts after Hurricane Camille devastated southern Albemarle and Nelson counties in 1969. A group of UVA students and faculty who called themselves SCRUB went out to help clean up after the hurricane and discovered families living in dire housing conditions. Since becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1976, AHIP has grown into an award-winning community resource helping very low-income residents in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County in need of critical home repairs. Volunteers have remained integral to AHIP’s work, connecting neighbors to each other, getting essential rehab and repair tasks done, and helping us stretch donor dollars further or close funding gaps. The work we do improves homes, preserves assets, revitalizes neighborhoods, and protects the local affordable housing stock.
