Abode Communities


About Us

Abode Communities’ mission is to create service-enhanced affordable housing and socially-beneficial community facilities that promote social, economic, and physical transformation of underserved communities. Established in 1968, Abode Communities is the longest-established affordable housing provider in Southern California. The organization’s impact is realized through a fully integrated, multidisciplinary approach to community development and professional services – real estate (development, acquisition/rehabilitation, portfolio management), architecture and property management. Above and beyond, the organization’s mission-critical on-site resident (social) services program, Beyond Homes, ensures that low-income populations can remain stable in their housing while working to achieve upward mobility. Abode Communities has developed more than 40 residential and mixed-use communities; owns and operates 2,354 high-quality apartment rental homes; and has impacted nearly 8,000 residents’ lives by stabilizing rents, eliminating blight and providing critical social services for extremely low, very-low and low-income parents, children, seniors and people with special needs living throughout California. Abode Communities promotes long-term tenant health, reduces tenant utility costs, conserves natural resources, and provides a safe, environmentally friendly place for residents to thrive through the creation of Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design® (LEED®) certified homes. In fact, the organization has successfully completed six (6) LEED for Homes Platinum-rated developments with the most Platinum-rated units in the State of California for the sixth consecutive year; one (1) LEED® for Homes Gold-rated development; and one (1) NetZero community building.
