In 2012, the Arlington Presbyterian Church approached APAH to create a space that would both provide affordable housing and serve as a place of crossroads and connection for the community. The congregation selected the name Gilliam Place to honor Ronda Gilliam (1906-1970), a church elder who was a steward and visionary in the community. Learn more about how Arlington Presbyterian Church made their decision.
Expected to be completed in mid-2019, 173 new affordable units will include 11 barrier-free units to meet the needs of persons with disabilities. Construction will begin summer, 2017. Learn more by reading our Gilliam Place Property Investor Sheet.

Westover is a vibrant neighborhood in northwest Arlington. Since it is a highly attractive place to live, the neighborhood is facing a critical shortage of affordable homes. APAH’s Fisher House I & II seek to address this need. APAH purchased Fisher House II’s eight buildings (68 units) as a preservation response to the trend of market affordable apartment demolition in Westover. The Fisher House II buildings will be renovated from beginning in Spring 2018, incorporating energy and water efficient apartment features. At Fisher House II, there will be several accessible units, as well as eight units designated for permanent supportive housing, including for formerly homeless veterans.
Fisher House II will be available beginning Spring 2018. Prospective residents can sign up for our interest list here.
