COMMUNITY FEATURE: EAH Housing was formed in response to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the riots following his murder, and the 1967 Kerner Report which articulated that violence and poverty arose from lack of jobs, education, and housing.
In 1968, a group of concerned citizens came together with the intention to bring about social change through the creation of housing opportunities that would be available to people regardless of income or ethnic background.
EAH Housing now serves over 25,000 seniors, families, veterans, students, people with special needs, and the formerly unhoused. VMWP looks forward to adding to this legacy with 1 Hamilton, a 45 unit affordable family community in Mill Valley scheduled to go to City Council, on February 5th.

“We have inherited a large house, a great ‘world house’ in which we have to live together, black and white, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Muslim and Hindu—a family unduly separated in ideas, culture, and interest, who, because we can never again live apart, must learn somehow to live with each other in peace.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
