Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing


Avesta Housing operates more than 3,000 affordable homes at over 100 properties, and we add more every year. We build resident-focused affordable homes with amenities and provide support services to create stability, opportunity, and healthy living.

Our work begins long before the first shovel of dirt is moved and continues long after residents move into their new homes. Learn more about the work we do below.

Avesta Housing Properties

Real Estate Development

New housing construction or rehabilitation is carefully researched and planned so that it best serves the needs of residents and surrounding communities. Cutting-edge sustainable housing practices are followed to minimize environmental impact and maximize energy efficiency.

Resident Services

Each property is assigned a team of highly trained property managers, resident service coordinators, and maintenance technicians to ensure that our residents live in safe, quality homes.

Residential Care & Assisted Living

Ensuring that older adults live in safe, quality homes is one of our main priorities. Two of our properties, Inn at Village Square in Gorham and 75 State Street in Portland, provide assisted living with trained staff.

Financial Counseling

The Avesta HomeOwnership Center provides educational support and advocacy for people seeking to improve their financial situation, buy their first home, or avoid eviction or foreclosure.
