What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is a lack of quality affordable housing in Howard County Maryland and surrounding communities for the elderly and disabled. Our nonprofit organization's mission is to promote and provide quality affordable housing primarily for seniors and the disabled. We do this by owning and managing such housing and seeking ways to create additional opportunities for increasing the supply of affordable housing.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of our organization is to ensure that there is an adequate supply of quality affordable accessible housing in our community

We do this by properly maintaining and when necessary rehabilitating the properties that we own to ensure that they are meeting the needs of the populations we serve. We also do this through partnerships with other nonprofit owners of affordable housing by providing them with quality property management services. We advocate for more affordable housing in our community and on issues that would be of benefit to the residents we serve.

The Executive Director. who has an MPA, has been with the organization for more than ten years, has nearly 30 years of experience in the housing industry. The ED participates on numerous local boards and committees and testifies before County Council and at the State. The staff, while small is also highly experienced, educated and well trained ranging from holding a Master Degree in Real Estate to a Master Plumber The board of directors is made up of numerous experts in the field of development, housing and property management as well as general community advocates.

The organization from the last three year plan accomplished the following

The organization had a year long celebration of providing 50 years of affordable housing in Howard County with three events. One of the events, the Heritage Housing Legacy Award, will become our signature event. The event was skipped in 2020 but is next planned for Sept 2021
We secured additional work by partnering with another non profit in the community to provide property management services for 143 scattered site units
We partnered with the County to purchase units and make them affordable to renters

In 2020 We did our best to keep staff and residents safe during the pandemic
