AHDC's First Annual Resident Community Day

AHDC held its first ever Resident Community Day, an event of fun, games, food, and conversation, on June 9th. Our goal was to bring our residents together not only to talk about who we are as housing developers, but to hear first hand ideas they have as members of our community, and start conversations about what we can do to improve the resident experience. This family-friendly event also featured face-painting, sidewalk chalk and games, and a raffle for children and adults.

We couldn't have pulled this off without the legion of volunteers who showed up to hang out with residents, coordinate check in, and have some fun in the process. Thank you!

Special thanks also go out to the live band, FeelFree, and Halal Tikka Kabob food truck for helping us create a wonderful atmosphere.

Energy Masters update Arbelo Apartments

Energy Masters, a program run by Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) and partnered with the City of Alexandria, updated Alexandria Housing Development Corporation’s (AHDC) Arbelo Apartments while training their new recruits this past Saturday. Trainees insulated wall outlets and light switches, installed low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators, and caulked windows, all of which will provide green cost savings to our residents free of charge. Part of AHDC’s plan for the future includes environmentally sustainable buildings and renovations, making sure that we invest responsibly in Alexandria’s future. The work of Energy Masters helps us further that goal.

The six year old program has trained over 180 volunteers and helped 700 families in affordable housing in the NOVA region with educational outreach and upgrades. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our neighbors and communities!
