Our bilingual staff works diligently with tenants to provide them with safe, affordable, low/moderate-income housing. They also work with other community agencies that will assist our clients to help them improve their lives.
The Crispus Attucks Association’s commitment to provide low-income housing to the York community has reached a critical juncture. We have begun to evaluate current neighborhood needs, homeownership opportunities, partnerships with other not-for-profit organizations and the forging of new business partnerships. This evaluation will carry forward as we look to restructure the ownership structure, rehabilitate properties and fill the service gaps that exist in York.

The Maintenance Department maintains an inventory of supplies, a workshop area to repair large items, and space for additional training of YouthBuild students who may work nearby. This arrangement helps to save costs by allowing for better monitoring of equipment and supplies, consolidating services, and promoting efficiency of staff time.
The maintenance of our low-income housing units is a primary concern for the department. They continually strive to provide the best service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
