Questions/ Comments
Homestead Affordable Housing, Inc is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit developer that is a certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). We partners with local communities to plan, build/develop, and manage affordable senior housing and workforce housing.

Our developments utilize IRB financing with local communities. We build high quality affordable housing that we ensure is affordable in the community in perpetuity.

As a non-profit we have a larger percentage of the development budget going into the brick and mortar hard costs with less going to support the profits of a commercial for profit developer.
