AHC seeks a President & CEO to provide visionary leadership for the staff and community as the organization continues to grow and enhance its holistic approach to providing services and high-quality affordable housing to thousands of residents in the region.

About AHC

Founded in 1975 and known initially as the Arlington Housing Corporation, AHC has evolved into a full-service owner and operator of low- and mixed-income housing communities in Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia, Montgomery County, and the Baltimore area. Through a comprehensive approach that addresses the holistic needs of residents, AHC provides high-quality service-enhanced living environments that help build stable and productive lives for residents and their communities. AHC’s outstanding track record of revitalizing communities has earned the organization membership into the Housing Partnership Network and membership in and an exemplary rating from NeighborWorks.

AHC program areas include:

  • Real Estate Development: AHC is one of the largest developers of affordable and mixed-income housing in the region. Having developed more than 50 properties providing more than 8,000 affordable workforce and market-rate homes, AHC takes pride in its long-time partnerships and quality developments that strengthen neighborhoods and boost property values.
  • Resident Services: Since its start in a vacant apartment in 1993, AHC’s resident services have evolved into a multi-faceted program that nurtures children from elementary through high school and provides a variety of educational opportunities and social services for parents and senior citizens in AHC-owned buildings. AHC provides these services to 3,000 residents annually, benefiting from the support of a thousand volunteers and supporters as well as partnership with 50 community organizations. AHC is particularly proud of the support provided to AHC residents during the COVID crisis, which included food distribution, vaccine dissemination, rent relief, and mental health assistance.
  • Construction Management: In addition to the real estate development team, AHC has an in-house construction management division that provides owner’s representative services to the development and asset management teams, including assistance in the selection of architects, civil engineers, and other predevelopment planning and capital improvement activities. Once construction begins, the construction management division manages requests for information, potential change orders, and other monitoring of general contractors.
  • Asset Management: AHC’s asset management team works to ensure the long-term quality of AHC properties and is tasked with overseeing and working with the third-party management companies for AHC properties. AHC is working to improve the feedback from residents on property conditions through enhanced staff and resident communications and by adding two AHC property residents to the AHC Board. Looking ahead, a number of AHC properties are reaching the end of their 15-year Low Income Housing Tax Credit compliance period. AHC is exploring the long-term strategy for these and other properties in the portfolio.

Organizational Transitions

AHC is in an important transition period focused on organizational leadership and culture. AHC’s long-tenured President & CEO retired in May 2021 and several additional senior leaders have announced their planned retirements in 2022. An Interim CEO assumed leadership of the organization in July 2021 and will continue to serve in the role until a President & CEO is appointed. On December 1, 2021, AHC announced that it will shift to third-party management and discontinue its property management subsidiary toward the end of the first quarter of 2022.
