Non-profit Spotlight: AHC, Inc.

AHC is a private, nonprofit developer of affordable housing in the mid-Atlantic region that provides quality homes for low- and moderate-income families. Created in 1975, AHC has 35 properties with more than 4,300 affordable apartments.

AHC also offers a variety of programs to help families build strong futures, including homeownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income individuals; affordable mortgage services and loan programs; renovation and repair services for homeowners; and services for residents, including after-school programs, tutoring and adult workshops.

Currently, AHC is looking for volunteers to tutor teens throughout the school year. AHC has been providing one-on-one tutoring to at-risk teens for more than 15 years. Last year, 100% of students who participated in the program graduated from high school and 80% went on to college.

There are 6 locations in Arlington where tutoring takes place and the sessions begin on September 13th. AHC asks tutors for a commitment of one night per week, 60 or 90 minutes per session, and they ask volunteers to commit to their teen from September through June.

If you can make this commitment and are eager to affect the lives of disadvantaged youth, AHC would love to hear from you!
