Building Foundations for Families

Kent Attainable Housing is a nonprofit breaking the cycle of poverty by building or renovating affordable houses and partnering with low income, working families to prepare for and buy a home.  Expanding home ownership to families in need builds foundations for healthier, happier and more productive families and a stronger community.

Thanks to this fabulous community for all your support in helping us complete our first home and housing our first family of five.

This accomplishment was the result of an extraordinary effort by over a hundred generous people. Neighbors, friends and local organizations joined together in typical Kent County fashion to help deliver an affordable house to a working family in need of housing and a chance to break out of poverty. 

Our First Home Is Completed

The Garnet House, named in honor of the high school formerly on the same plot of land, was completed in January 2021, and the selected family moved into their first home on January 29. The three-bedroom, two- bath modular house was delivered on October 28, and for three months, despite the pandemic, countless volunteers and businesses generously donated time, resources, and expertise to complete the exterior and interior.

We buy property, design or renovate homes, landscape the yards and partner with low-income families to buy the home.  We build the capacity of our applicants to successfully own a home through required workshops in financial literacy, home ownership, and budget management.  We use community volunteers and partners to help make the homes affordable and to mentor applicants through the process.

The Garnet House Arrived in Dramatic Fashion

Kent Attainable Housing depends on the compassion of people like you to help us create a better community.  Whether you have time to give, a specialized talent or a willingness to learn, a small donation or a large one, your critical donation of time or money makes the difference in making our homes affordable for people in need.
