What We Do

We build communities that change lives and revitalize neighborhoods.

City Center Plaza in Redwood City

Our vision for the future is clear. We work every day to create a world where everyone has access to safe, attractive affordable housing — and where they can use the opportunity of living in that housing to advance their well-being and give back to their communities.

We work closely with our city and county partners to respond to their needs and priorities. Our goal is to develop communities which enhance their cities and catalyze growth and opportunity for their residents.

Four companies. One mission.
