Affordable rental housing is an acute need in southern California. In fact, Orange and Los Angeles Counties are consistently ranked in the top 15 when it comes to the highest rents and lowest vacancy rates.
American Family Housing (AFH) addresses this issue by developing and operating affordable rental housing serving the full range of median income levels. By providing affordable apartments and shared living opportunities in multi-family, single family and condominium units, AFH ensures individuals and families have housing options that allow them to successfully be a part of the local community.
AFH owns over 50 affordable rental housing properties in three southern California counties-Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino. AFH properties offer more than 250 units of housing that ensure the provision of safe, affordable homes for adults and families. Of these units, 75% are family units and 10% are set-aside for veterans. More than 25% of the units offer intensive support services to vulnerable populations.
AFH is always seeking the support of the community in creating new affordable housing opportunities. If you would like to donate or sell your property for this charitable purpose, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sixteen beautiful, 480-square-foot living spaces designed to complement the surrounding environment are now new homes for chronically homeless veterans who once resided on the streets.
Permanent Supportive Housing
About 25% of our affordable housing units are considered service enriched permanent supportive housing and are reserved for households with one disabled family member. About 10% of the units are set aside for formerly homeless Veterans.
Homeless families are 2x more likely to have a disabled household member than the general population. AFH provides service enriched permanent supportive housing reserved for households with one disabled family member in about 25% of its affordable housing units.
AFH permanent supportive housing provides flexible and responsive services based on each individual’s need and ensure long term housing stability, including but not limited to, budgeting, employment services, children’s services, counseling-therapeutic, credit, and housing, crisis intervention, and eviction prevention. The program goal is to address issues that jeopardize housing stability and place adults and families at-risk for returning to homelessness.
