Crispus Attucks provides safe, affordable housing for low to moderate income residents. Our housing units include 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and single family homes in the southeast neighborhood of York. The Housing Program provides referrals for our tenants to other agencies and services. Select renovated houses offer home ownership opportunities.

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.
