WHO WE ARE
South County Housing is a nonprofit community development corporation. We operate in the California counties of Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito. For 30 years, we have been in the business of building community through Affordable Housing Development, Property Management and Neighborhood Development. Since 1979, we’ve built 2,873 units, including 1,559 affordable apartments. Our buildings, which residents take pride in maintaining, have won national awards for their beauty and utility.
Our model of combining mixed income housing with on-site services addresses the unique needs of each community. When we build neighborhoods, we invest in their long-term success with recreational amenities, childcare facilities and community buildings with computer labs. Working with strong community partners, we bring in services that enhance the lives of our renters and homebuyers. The positive change in the lives of our residents is, and will continue to be, the real measure of South County Housing’s success.
Along with our affiliates, South County Community Builders and South County Property Management, we provide tools and training for people to create their own neighborhoods.
