Applegate Housing Inc. is a non-profit client centered subsidized housing establishment. Applegate is one of the only resident -run communities in the country. This means the residents have a voice in all that is decided; such as events that take place, any major purchases, and any changes to the property. The community is thriving with many resident -run committees. The Neighborhood Watch committee works very closely with the local police department and keeps the neighborhood safe and quiet. Resident services include an on-site food shelf and freezer stocked with food. A small library, a clothing shelf, and a computer lab. All services are free to residents. Many workshops and educational programs are offered annually. Weekly programs include adult activities, a teen group and a youth group.
