Who We Are

AHPC is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming lives through affordable housing.

Our Vision

To create personal and lasting solutions to the affordable housing crisis by revitalizing communities, empowering people, and expanding housing options for all. 

 

Current housing models do not adequately address the needs for affordable housing, particularly for middle income families and college students. AHPC offers a reinvented model to secure affordable housing to better serve those in need.

 

At the forefront of our model is our “non-eviction policy” or NEP.  Life happens – and we understand that sometimes you run into a pot hole in the road resulting in occasional financial difficulty.  Our NEP assists residents with rental support on those rare occasions.

Our mission

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for families, students, individuals, and communities by helping to develop, produce, acquire, manage or preserve low-cost affordable housing, workforce housing and student housing in neighborhoods across the United States.

Our values

Integrity in our dealings with residents, partners, and all third parties. Respect demonstrated and reflected in our dealings with residents, partners, and third parties. Deliberate in our decision making and efforts in further of AHPC’s mission. Transparency to all parties in the operations of AHPC.

Dear Friend,
The Affordable Housing Preservation Corporation was established to address a growing need in our country to prevent homelessness. Our mission, through a coordinated effort, is to develop, produce, acquire, preserve, and manage affordable housing. As a 501(c)3 organization created in early 2021, AHPC has acquired more than 3,500 multi-family units across the Southeast serving a broad range of households, including traditional and non-traditional families, students, veterans, and seniors. Tenants in our communities range from single parents trying to raise children in a safe and welcoming environment, to nurses, fire fighters, and young professionals, as well as senior citizens, many of whom are looking to make ends meet on a limited budget.


We partner with qualified management teams and independent social services providers to build communities where tenants are offered financial resource education, children may participate in youth programming and adults have opportunities for additional education programs to foster employment assistance and housing stability. Taking such steps is a pathway to creating personal and lasting solutions not only for our tenants, but also for the communities that are being revitalized. We want to help individuals feel empowered to reach and achieve their dreams. By maintaining integrity in all our actions and demonstrating respect for our residents, partners and all third parties, we can succeed in our mission. We pledge that our decisions will be deliberate and our actions transparent as we move forward to provide affordable housing options to those who need it.


We invite you not only to share, but to participate, in our journey to accomplish these goals. You can be a part of a positive change in the world right outside your door.


Thank you for your support.

Get Involved

AHPC is working to create a truly accessible NPO structure. The truth is that we don’t just need large donations. We are building homes with every day and we need doorknobs, we need mailboxes, we need all of the little things that make up a home.

You can help us solve the housing crisis in your own way.

Sponsor a Home accessory

We created a list of small home accessories that we need to finish up housing. These little touches go a long ways toward making a new families house feel like a home.
