Established as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in Corpus Christi, Texas in 2005, Accessible Housing Resources, Inc. provides affordable, accessible, decent housing for low income households. AHRI is also focused on serving individuals and households with a disability, and offers rental assistance for low-income individuals and families in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend.
