Our team is an action-based, collaborative group of cross-sector professionals called to address San Diego’s housing crisis by activating abundant, under-utilized faith community properties suitable for multi-family residential projects.
Our vision is to be a resource to faith communities that want to use their surplus land to develop much needed affordable housing in the San Diego region. Our approach is to help congregations create a triple bottom line where they are providing mission driven housing solutions, using environmentally sustainable materials and contributing to their own financial well-being.
Our goal for the region is 3,000 units on faith property by 2025 without having to utilize the often lengthy and costly Low Income Housing Tax Credit system.
