Celebrating an outstanding youth award winner and his family at The Station, 2017.
LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR
As we reflect on this past year, Alexandria Housing Development Corporation (AHDC) celebrates it’s growth, partnerships, and organizational sustainability in 2017. AHDC believes that affordable housing is at the nexus of many issues facing our city today, and we are proud to be part of the solution.
In 2017, AHDC paved the way for an additional 171 units of affordable housing construction, in addition to the renovation (and long-term preservation) of 44 existing affordable apartments. These homes will provide financial stability, a sense of community, and other valuable resources to their residents. AHDC is also proud to have won substantial tax credit and State and National trust fund awards to build these properties.
AHDC has grown as an organization to meet these needs. In addition to the hiring of three new staff members, AHDC has supported an AmeriCorps VISTA member and paid graduate-level summer interns to develop our programs, expand our perspectives, and tell our story. We implemented our Strategic Plan to guide us forward, and have integrated data analysis into all our decision making.
Most importantly, we made partners in our community. AHDC works with the City, faith based groups, market rate developers, gardening and wellness experts, local non-profits, and our residents to see our vision come to life - that all may live and thrive in Alexandria.
We hope that you’ll continue to support AHDC and affordable housing as we work towards making our city and region a more affordable place to call home.
- Jonathan D. Frederick, Executive Director
