SFHDC has successfully developed affordable homes in the notoriously expensive San Francisco area since 1988. With nearly 800 completed homes and a total of 1,200 units in development, SFHDC has been life changing for people struggling to afford the increasing rent 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 goal is to create safe, affordable and attractive housing that transforms residents’ lives. Our housing development projects are also economic catalysts that help transform communities into thriving and self-sustaining neighborhoods throughout San Francisco.
