The next lottery will be held on November 4th for all current, approved and qualified households.


At Princeton Community Housing we have been providing clean, safe, attractive and affordable rental homes to families, individuals, seniors and differently-abled people for almost five decades. Today we help more than 1,000 Princeton residents. How many more will your gift allow us to help?

Please help us sustain a vital and diverse Princeton community through your gift. Help us to ensure that seniors and younger workers are not forced to move away from their families because they cannot afford to live in Princeton; to bring cultural diversity to our public schools and toour children's lives; and to continue to sustain a better Princeton. As we approach the holiday season, we hope that you take this opportunity to invest in this vision.


With our warmest wishes for the holiday season and New Year....thank you for your support!





Princeton Community Housing (PCH) would like to sincerely thank Borden Perlman Salisbury & Kelly Insurance for their generous contribution of $4,000 to Princeton Community Village (PCV) in honor of the renaming of the Clubhouse for Theodore M. Vial, one of the founders of Princeton Community Housing. 

Borden Perlman is a steadfast supporter of PCH and this contribution will help PCV undertake renovations to the kitchen and restroom spaces in the Theodore M. Vial Clubhouse, which is the main community gathering space for residents and staff at PCV.

On June 19th, in proud recognition of Ted Vial’s service and commitment to Princeton Community Housing and the Princeton community, the PCV clubhouse was renamed the "Theodore M. Vial Clubhouse."

The memory of Ted's giving nature and his service to PCH and Princeton inspire us all to continue our work in support of the community and affordable housing.

PCH thanks it's Board of Trustees, staff, Dr. Rev. David Davis of Nassau Presbyterian Church and the Vial family for joining us in this commemoration.

According to the annual, national report released recently, New Jersey is the fifth most expensive location in the nation to rent a two bedroom apartment; only Hawaii, California, and New York are less affordable. In order to afford a modest two-bedroom home in the Garden State, a family must earn an hourly wage of $25.17, far more than the state’s average hourly wage of $16.92.

A recent editorial in the New York Times encourages the federal government to restructure its own programs so that more affordable housing is built in low-poverty, high opportunity neighborhoods.

Thank you for your support and generous contributions to our ongoing 2014 Annual Appeal.
