“We are more than a community, we are family.”

Diamante Johnson

“What community means to me? For me, community is more than just a group of people living in a particular area. A community is a group of people we lean on when times are tough; our friends, family, and neighbors who are there for us when we need love, support and encouragement.

ACOF has brought a sense of community to my life, like never before. You would assume that in an apartment building you wouldn’t make time or find time to know your neighbors or get out to a therapy session, or any other activities/events outside of your home. I credit my sense of community to the amazing, hand on, but not intrusive, non-judgemental, yet compassionate/nurturing, supportive and creative staff here at ACOF.

From monthly tenant meetings, supportive 1-on-1 sessions, therapists, psychiatrists, movie nights, art classes, or staff showing appreciation with endless BBQ’s, which bring everyone in the buildings together. Whether we are having a heart-to-heart conversation with security or helping another tenant carry their groceries to the elevator. We are more than a community, we are family.”
