Charting impact

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

Our organization's goal is to provide people housing that costs less than 30% of a families gross income. We strive to make the communities we manage friendly, clean, affordable, and happy places to live.

To achieve our goals we use programs to develop our communities. We use programs like the Housing Credits, Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), the State Apartment Investment Loan Program (SAIL), and the State Housing Initiatives Program (SHIP). We also partner with related companies to ensure that we are doing the best job we possibly can.

Affordable Housing Solutions for Florida has an efficient, hardworking, and reliable staff who genuinely care about providing affordable housing. Even after a community is established we work hard to further develop and better our communities. The staff is experienced in the housing business and are knowledgable in human services. Affordable Housing Solutions for Florida itself is a 25 year old organization that knows how to handle disasters like Hurricane Andrew and Hurricane Irma.

We have established over 4500 affordable housing units in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Texas. We have ownership of over 20 affordable communities and are certified by Florida Housing Finance Corporation as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). We marked our 25th anniversary as a nonprofit organization in 2017. We plan to continue developing new developments and further improve our communities.
