About Us

Home is more than a place, it’s a feeling. We believe everyone has the right to feel safe, secure and comfortable in their living environment.

The Affordable Housing Alliance is a community catalyst that provides housing and related relief to all who need it, giving every NJ citizen the opportunity to live a better life. Our team of knowledgeable, compassionate difference makers offer rental and home ownership help, mortgage and foreclosure counseling, utility assistance and home buyer education, guiding people through every step of the process to achieve stability, progress and peace of mind.

Started in 1991 to address the overwhelming need for quality, affordable housing in Monmouth County, the AHA has grown from an initial grant of $25,000 to a private 501(c)3 non-profit organization with over $20M in operations annually. Founding Director Donna Blaze, now CEO, leads a staff of over 80 dedicated employees augmented by volunteers and non-profit community partners.

Our work has been recognized at local, state, and national levels, including earning NeighborWorks America’s highest rating as an Exemplary Member. We are proud to be a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) and to collaborate with NJ municipalities to successfully create affordable housing for moderate and low-income families.

The AHA strives to move lives forward with strength, optimism, and housing resources. It is our goal to have everyone we help walk away better than when they came to us.
