At the core of AHI’s Theory of Impact is the concept that housing is the foundation for any individual’s or family’s path to stability and opportunity. By itself, housing will not solve poverty, racial inequity, or social exclusion, but none of these challenges can be solved without housing as a key element. It is a critical underlying infrastructure of our neighborhoods, communities, and cities.
AHI prioritizes making catalytic and systemic impact in all of our work, though some projects naturally offer greater opportunity for change than others. In service of our mission, AHI will periodically spearhead initiatives or projects that would not exist but for AHI’s pro-bono or low-bono engagement. Such projects have included:
- The incubation of early-stage entities in the housing space
- Work with public-housing residents during a multi-year redevelopment process
- Collaboration with international NGOs to design new strategies of sustainable engagement in the housing space.
