Combining award winning design, innovative on-site services and a commitment to people, EAH reflects the distinctive personality of each community.

Affordable housing is a critical issue touching each of us. From teachers to caregivers and seniors and firefighters – we are all affected by the availability of housing. Unparalleled dedication by EAH staff, Board and special funders will continue to bring affordable housing to the many constituencies that compose the unique fabric of our country today.
