HOUSING & SOCIAL SERVICES

Our work started with housing and social services, and it is still our largest area of focus. Nothing else can be improved within our community if our people do not first have safe, stable, and affordable housing.

EVICTION PREVENTION

We focus on preventing evictions by working with dozens of area landlords, with whom we have close relationships. If we are not able to mitigate solutions ourselves, we can provide the necessary legal referrals, while continuing to co-manage the issue with the Housing Justice Project, helping with translation and any cultural differences that may arise.

SENIOR PROGRAM

Our Senior Program is designed to promote holistic health and wellness for the community of African Diaspora elders. Elders were the first supporters of ACHD, and without them we would not be where we are today. Our services stretch from exercise classes to hot food & produce delivery services.

JOBS & HOUSING

ACHD's Jobs & Housing program works to promote self-sustainability by aiding unhoused individuals and families in finding a safe, stable, place to call home and a rewarding career that supports them and their whole family for years to come.

As of November 2022, the Jobs & Housing program is FULL.

PHOENIX PROGRAM

In February 2021 the Washington State Supreme Court ruled that a simple drug possession statue crime is unconstitutional and void. In partnership with King County, ACHD's Phoenix Program works to ensure all cases are heard and that people have access to holistic support during the expungement process. Services provided by ACHD are dependent on each individual's unique needs.

FOOD ACCESS

We provide direct food assistance to families in need. Specifically, we focus on healthy, culturally relevant foods for our community.

In June of 2021 ACHD launched the Delridge Farmers Market in the Delridge neighborhood of West Seattle. The market features vendors of color, highlighting fresh food for the African Diaspora community.
