Kent Affordable Housing
Working to improve housing opportunities in our community
Kent’s workers, families and retirees of modest means are the main concern of Kent Affordable Housing (KAH), an all-volunteer nonprofit organization founded in 1990.
- South Common, a 24-unit rental complex, was inaugurated in 2003.
- A current project is Stuart Farm Apartments, the renovation and expansion of an 1828 farmhouse to provide five affordable rentals within walking distance of the center of Kent.
- The KAH Parcel Program seeks to obtain small lots to be leased to families who build homes for themselves. One home built on donated land is now owner-occupied, and KAH is seeking further parcel donations while also raising funds to purchase land.
- KAH is working with HousingUS, a program to encourage the creation of accessory apartments in Kent.
