Company Description:
About the Organization: Preservation of Affordable Housing (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 D.C. POAH’s Chicago office is currently managing a strong pipeline of work in Chicago itself, but also has a pending pipeline in Ohio that will be staffed from the Chicago office. 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 inclusion 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.
