EAH Housing is a nonprofit corporation founded with the belief that attractive affordable rental housing is the cornerstone to sustainable, living communities. Starting from grass-roots origins in response to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, EAH Housing has since become one of the largest and most respected nonprofit housing development and management organizations in the western United States. EAH develops low-income affordable housing, manages over 100 properties in California and Hawaii, and plays a vital leadership role in local, regional and national housing advocacy efforts. It now serves over 20,000 seniors, families, students, people with disabilities, frail elderly, and the formerly homeless.
The lack of affordable housing is a critical issue that affects so many of us—from teachers to caregivers and seniors to firefighters—and EAH Housing is committed to maintaining the current supply of affordable rental housing and building communities that enhance the surrounding neighborhoods. The vision of EAH Housing is of building balanced communities comprised of people of many income levels, educational backgrounds, job skills, religions, and races with attractive and affordable housing. We believe this balance enhances the quality and richness of all our lives. Combining award-winning design, innovative on-site services and a commitment to people, EAH reflects and enhances the distinctive personality of each community. In addition, properties owned by EAH are designed to be affordable in perpetuity and not to be sold.
Unparalleled dedication by EAH Housing staff, board, and special funders will continue to bring affordable housing to the many constituencies that compose the unique fabric of our country today. We are proud to be an equal opportunity housing provider.
