The Alliance for Housing Solutions

Our mission 

The Alliance for Housing Solutions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to increase the supply of affordable housing in Arlington County and Northern Virginia through public education, policy development, advocacy and innovation.

Our beliefs

AHS was created by civic leaders motivated by the belief that Arlington was rapidly becoming a community in which only affluent families could afford to live. Supporters believe in:

  • Access to affordable, safe and decent housing for people of all economic backgrounds—including lower-income individuals and families with children, elderly people, and persons with disabilities
  • Diverse communities, where people of different cultural backgrounds and economic status can come to know each other and where children can be educated in schools which reflect the diverse world they will inherit
  • Inclusion of public servants—teachers, police, firefighters, and other public employees—strengthening ties and building familiarity in the communities they serve.
  • Livable communities, where family, commuting, and environmental stresses are reduced by access to quality public transit, community infrastructure and proximity of homes to jobs.

Arlington for Everyone:

Tools for Maintaining and Creating Diverse Housing Options

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 – 3:00pm – 7:30pm

NRECA, 4301 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, 22203

Arlington is rapidly changing. High housing costs, redevelopment, and demographic shifts are remaking our community. With all of these changes underway, what can be done to help ensure that Arlington can remain a place where people from all walks of life are welcome and can afford to live? This year’s AHS Leckey Forum will explore the idea of “Arlington for Everyone” and focus on two policy tools with immediate relevance: the preservation of at-risk “market affordable” garden apartments, and the creation of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) throughout the County.
