Founded in 1974, Adams County commissioners initially established Adams County Housing Authority (ACHA) to further the mission of creating and preserving the vision of safe and affordable housing for all residents. A small housing authority in comparison to counterparts across the country, ACHA has always been nimble and progressive in its approach. And in 2018, the organization changed its name to Unison Housing Partners to further harness the momentum of its progressive efforts. This new name defies the stereotypes of affordable housing and is reflective of the coming together of communities to support the hard working individuals and families on the path towards stability and economic independence.
Unison continues to offer the same assistance and programming as it has for the last 30+ years, and remains committed to collaborating with like-minded agencies and to socially conscious community development.
