Preservation of Affordable Housing, Inc. (POAH) is a national nonprofit
organization whose mission is to preserve, create and sustain affordable, healthy homes that support
economic security, racial equity and access to opportunity for all. POAH owns and operates more than
12,000 affordable homes at more than 120 properties in 11 states and the District of Columbia. POAH is
based in Boston with offices in Chicago and Washington, DC.
POAH’s reach is national in scope, and its pursuit of the preservation mission is empowered by a focus
on the business bottom line. Its strong reputation is the result of a demonstrated ability to craft
complex financial transactions, tackle tough multi-family projects, and close deals that preserve the
affordability of at-risk properties. The organization and its leaders are at the forefront of policy and
legislative discussions around housing preservation, affordable housing finance and regulatory reform,
including energy efficiency in the multifamily sector.
The POAH team is dedicated, creative and passionate. We believe a diverse and inclusive team is a
stronger, smarter team, and we actively promote diversity and meaningful inclusio...n of different
perspectives among our board, our staff, our partners, in our procurement of good and services, and at
our communities. We understand that addressing structural racism and achieving racial equity are
central to the work we do and we proactively integrate the issue of race in our housing work.
