Over 45 years of building community


Our Mission: To create stronger, more diverse communities by providing and maintaining high-quality affordable housing where individuals and families thrive.

We’re Palo Alto Housing—nice to meet you! We’re bay area locals, and we’ve been in Palo Alto since the ‘70s. We’re an independent non-profit agency whose mission is to foster, develop, acquire, and manage low- and moderate-income housing in Palo Alto and the San Francisco Bay Area. We provide good, safe housing; subsidize rents to the greatest degree possible, and attend to the human needs of tenants through our Resident Services Program.

We believe that everyone has their own story, yet we all want the same thing: we want what’s best for our families; we want to do good work. We believe that communities benefit when people can afford to live in them, and that when it comes down to it, nothing is more valuable than people. See you around town!
