Since its founding in 1988, SFHDC has successfully developed 1,600 affordable homes in one of the most expensive cities in the nation, and has another 360 affordable homes in the development pipeline.  These housing opportunities have been life-changing for people struggling to afford the increasing rent or home prices in their communities. We build affordable ownership and rental homes for low- and middle-income families and individuals, seniors, and those with physical and mental disabilities. Our housing development projects are also economic catalysts that help transform communities into thriving and self-sustaining neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, and also create temporary and permanent jobs during and after construction.
