Kent Affordable Housing

Working to improve housing opportunities in our community

Kent’s workers, families and retirees of modest means are the main concern of Kent Affordable Housing (KAH), an all-volunteer nonprofit organization founded in 1990. 

  • South Common, a 24-unit rental complex, was inaugurated in 2003. 
  • A current project is Stuart Farm Apartments, the renovation and expansion of an 1828 farmhouse to provide five affordable rentals within walking distance of the center of Kent. 
  • The KAH Parcel Program seeks to obtain small lots to be leased to families who build homes for themselves.  One home built on donated land is now owner-occupied, and KAH is seeking further parcel donations while also raising funds to purchase land. 
  •  KAH is working with HousingUS, a program to encourage the creation of accessory apartments in Kent.
