The mission of the Columbia Housing Authority is to provide safe, healthy and affordable housing opportunities to low-income individuals and families. With nearly 1,900 units of assisted housing, the organization represents approximately 9 percent of Columbia’s rental market. It has been serving low-income families since 1956. In carrying out this mission, the authority seeks partnerships and group efforts with local organizations and other governmental agencies. The organization has a variety of volunteer opportunities helping children, youth, families, the elderly and persons with disabilities through its Moving Ahead Youth Program, Family Self-Sufficiency Program or Independent Living Program.
