Building Foundations for Families

Kent Attainable Housing


Kent Attainable Housing is a nonprofit working to break the cycle of 
poverty by creating home ownership opportunities for local families in need of safe, decent and affordable housing.  We buy property, design or rehab a  home to place on the property, landscape the grounds and partner with a low income applicant to buy the home.  When we build homes for families in need, we build foundations for healthier, happier and more productive families and a stronger community.
