Linc Housing's mission is to build communities and strengthen neighborhoods for people underserved by the marketplace.

Linc Housing

Since 1984, Linc Housing has built a strong track record of creating communities for thousands of families and seniors throughout California. We're committed to building and preserving housing that is affordable, environmentally sustainable, and a catalyst for community improvement. Linc works hard to address the homelessness crisis by building supportive housing and addressing the affordable housing needs of our state's diverse population. Through our resident services, we're also providing life-enhancing programs that improve the quality of life for those who live in our communities.

Our Values



Linc approaches affordable housing in a multi-faceted way by implementing the following strategies:
Build new affordable housing

Preserve existing affordable housing

Develop and retrofit for sustainability

Provide supportive services

Advocate for strong affordable housing policy

The Linc story

In the 1980s, visionaries in government and business realized that with the escalating price of land, certain segments of California's population would be left behind with no hope to own or even rent a place to live: retired teachers and service sector personnel, and young working families. In 1984, concerned civic leaders formed a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization they named the Corporate Fund for Housing (CFH), and the organization began working toward securing affordable homes for these vital members of our growing economy.

Building on the experience and relationships gained in these early developments, in 1993 CFH formed a new entity, Linc Housing, with an expanded mission, staff, and service area. Since that time, the organization has developed a wide variety of affordable apartment homes through new construction, acquisition and rehabilitation of at-risk housing, historic preservation, and adaptive re-use. Linc creates and preserves housing with careful attention paid to quality, design, environmental sustainability, and life-enhancing resident services. We've created more supportive housing to support vulnerable populations and committed to having our properties be community assets - serving residents and surrounding neighborhoods by providing community amenities for better health and economic mobility. Each Linc community is unique to its neighborhood and the residents who call it home.

With more than 8,750 affordable apartments and more than 300 supportive housing units developed, we're proud to be the "linc" between hope and home for those in need of affordable homes.
