A Plan for Affordable Housing

View Our Informational Flyer

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Making real community change.

We are creating a replicable and sustainable teacher housing model. We combine vacant and underutilized public and privately owned land with green high-quality low-cost technology. This model allows the teachers' rent to be subsidized and they are able to save a downpayment to buy their own home.

This is a Pilot Program. Once the model is proven it can be replicated for anyone who is a part of the "Missing Middle". Low to moderate income earners who make too much money to qualify for traditional subsidized housing but cannot afford to live where they work. This includes community helpers such as Social Workers, Caregivers, Nursing Assistants, Police Dispatchers and City/County Employees and those in similar careers.

OUR MISSION

Help Our Teachers Afford To Live Here

  • Help schools recruit and retain teachers so that the Bay Area can have the best schools in the country.
  • Create a sense of Community by providing housing to retired teachers.
  • Help the Missing Middle become home owners by using a limited lease period with down payment savings program model.
