Our Impact

At Linc, property development is a catalyst for neighborhood growth and revitalization. And our resident services team puts residents first and partners with them in problem solving. Linc Housing is immensely grateful for our many partners, whose support helps us achieve our mission to build communities and strengthen neighborhoods.

Building Communities

Linc Housing aspires to multiply our impact in communities by going beyond housing to strengthen neighborhoods with quality health care, employment opportunities, youth training and education, community development, and more.

Spark at Midtown in Long Beach, which broke ground in 2019, is a shining example of this vision to incorporate community-serving amenities with affordable and supportive housing.

"Linc's model is about going deep and showing up as good partners. We bring financing and construction, but we also think about what a property can do for the neighborhood. Building more units isn't enough. We have to multiply the impact that we are having with each unit Linc develops," said Suny Lay Chang, Linc's chief operating officer.
"Spark is an example of our evolving approach to development and partnerships, and how the development can act as a catalyst for neighborhood change."

Linc's resident services empower individuals and families to build strong, healthy, and safe communities by providing resident-centered programs and facilitating positive community connections. Doing what's right requires empathy and flexibility to make things work when creative solutions are needed. It's also about offering equal opportunity to everyone. Our guiding principles for resident services include:

do what's right.

Safe at Home

Linc communities change lives.
The Gallegos family found stability and new opportunities at Mosaic Gardens in Pomona, a supportive housing community opened by Linc in 2017.


Their fortunes turned for the better in December 2017, when Ramon happened to drive by Mosaic Gardens at Pomona and saw its sign advertising affordable housing. He sent a postcard requesting an application, filled it out, and waited. Soon an affordable three-bedroom home became available — changing the trajectory of their lives.

"I was almost in tears," Ramon says of the moment they learned they had been approved to move into Mosaic Gardens at Pomona. "We've got our own spot, after all that struggling."

Ramon was able to get his commercial driver's license, which led to a better job as a sanitation truck driver, lifting the worry over how he would pay for food and rent. The children are doing much better in school, thanks to their new housing stability and Linc's after-school program.

"I get emotional.
My kids have someplace
to call home and back
then, they didn't."

Gricelda, Linc Resident
