Mission and Vision Statement
For over 80 years, the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority has managed Alexandria’s public housing units and provided affordable housing, economic opportunities and a living environment free from discrimination for low income and moderate income citizens of Alexandria. Our mission for the next five years is to become an industry leader in the development and management of model mixed income communities, while simultaneously increasing ARHA residents’ self-sufficiency and quality of life.
ARHA’s 2012 – 2022 Strategic Plan’s guiding principle is to increase the availability of affordable housing by maintaining, upgrading and redeveloping its housing properties and increasing resident self-sufficiency and quality of life. The Plan is divided into five parts which address: (1) affordable housing challenges; (2) strategies for resident self-sufficiency; (3) our community economic development approach; (4) ARHA’s relationship with the community and the need to build partnerships, and (5) the need to assure ARHA’s financial viability. ARHA’s Strategic Plan is consistent with the City of Alexandria's Housing Master Plan and Strategic Plan, HUD’s Plan and the applicable small area plans that have been adopted by the City, especially regarding the provision of low and moderate income housing and economic benefits to our residents.
