Our name is changing. Our commitment to community and making a difference in people’s lives is not. Community resilience is more important than ever. We follow the lead of our community partners so that the people who live there have an enduring place to call home. We will just do it under a different name – a name that emerged from our community and a name that better reflects the organization that we are today.
Affordable housing, with community at the center
Community Roots Housing creates affordable, quality places to live and work for people from all walks of life. Our nearly 50 apartment buildings offer affordable homes close to schools, jobs, and transit so a family does not have to choose between paying rent and buying groceries.
Community is the place we set down roots, create relationships, and build and live our lives. In this housing affordability crisis, people are pushed out of their communities by the impacts of racism, inequality, and gentrification. Our work fights this displacement to keep people from being pushed out. We embrace community-led development and engage in deep-rooted partnerships because it takes all of us to create equitable, vibrant communities.Our Approach
