Mission

The Affordable Housing Alliance's mission is to improve the quality of life for all New Jersey residents by developing and preserving affordable housing, offering services to maintain housing affordability, providing housing education, and helping communities meet their legal and moral housing obligations.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) was founded in 1991 with the clear goal of addressing Monmouth County’s affordable housing shortage. Through the hard work and dedication of our talented team of difference-makers, the AHA has grown into a 501c(3) non-profit with millions in annual operations, an ‘exemplary’ rating from NeighborWorks America, and a well-rooted footprint in New Jersey. While our organization continues to grow, the AHA’s commitment to supporting the Garden State’s housing and utility challenges remains unchanged. Our work has been recognized at local, state, and national levels, and we are proud to collaborate with New Jersey municipalities to successfully create affordable housing opportunities. The AHA strives to move lives forward with strength and optimism, and it is our goal to have everyone we help walk away better than when they came to us.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
