b'WELCOMEWelcome toCelebrate Home! 2022 in the remarkable Capital One Hall2022 marks my 12th year of service to APAHs residents, and my second year as President and CEO. I am so excited that this years affordable housing honoree is a personal mentor and regional affordable housing leader, David Bowers. David serves as the Vice President of Mid-Atlantic Market & Senior Advisor of Faith-Based Development Initiatives at Enterprise Community Partners. As you will hear this evening, you cannot help but be inspired by Davids passion and dedication. He was instrumental in the development of APAHs Gilliam Place project in partnership with Arlington Presbyterian Church. David motivates me to persevere in service to our neighbors, and I hope you will also be energized by his message tonight.APAH is in a season of tremendous growth, made possible by your partnership and support.We opened two more properties that provide 250 affordable homes in Arlington and Loudoun Counties. We celebrated the grand opening of Terwilliger Place, our first property with a veteran preference. We are also welcoming residents home at Loudoun View Senior, APAHs first senior property and first project in Loudoun County. These properties highlight APAHs commitment to members of our community that are too often left behind or forgotten, low-income seniors and veterans. Our phenomenal resident services team has already begun partnering with our residents and connecting them with resources in these newly opened properties. And our growth will continue! In the next two years, APAH will open three new properties and add 400 units of crucial affordable housing in Fairfax and Arlington Counties. APAHs growing footprint and expanded impact is possible thanks to the tireless work, leadership, and dedication of our board, staff, and generous supporters like you.Celebrate Home! is a moment for the APAH community to celebrate our collective success and recommit to serving the residents who call our properties home. We are grateful for the important role that each of you play in advancing our mission. We can now proudly say that we offer dedicated resources to residents at all stages of their lives.
