The American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA) was originally formed as a committee of the National Multi Housing Council in 1991, and became an independent, non-profit organization 10 years later on January 1, 2001.

Members of ASHA are executives involved in the operation, development and finance of the entire spectrum of seniors housing — senior apartments, independent living communities, assisted living residences, Alzheimer's care facilities and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). ASHA's membership consists of both for-profit and not-for-profit operators, lenders and investors, and other prominent professionals. The Association's membership owns and/or manages an estimated 500,000 units of seniors housing in the United States, with properties located in all 50 states, Canada and Europe.

For those interested in joining the seniors housing industry's leadership, ASHA welcomes inquiries to its Washington, D.C., offices at 202-237-0900 or you can visit ASHA's home page at


The American Seniors Housing Association provides leadership for the seniors housing industry on legislative and regulatory matters, advances research, education, and the exchange of strategic business information, and promotes the merits of seniors housing.
