Making real community change.

We are creating a replicable and sustainable teacher housing model on privately owned land without government funds using a social entrepreneurship model and green high quality low-cost technology.

This is a Pilot Program. Once the model is proven it can replicated for anyone who has a job, pays taxes, wants to own a home, and live where they work, including Social Workers, Caregivers, Nurses, and City/County Employees.


Help Our Teachers Afford To Live Here

  • Help schools recruit and retain teachers so that Santa Clara County 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.

"ONLY 1% of housing built since 2015 is for the "Missing Middle" (ie. moderate income households) in the Silicon Valley."

ELIZABETH FIGUEROA FRANKLIN MCKINLEY SAN JOSE Some of my best friends are teachers who are planning to move because of the price of housing. I want them to stay. Good teacher. "Go the extra mile" teachers. Patient teachers. They shouldn't be pushed out by greed.
