Living in high-cost, overcrowded and substandard homes inevitably hurts families and our communities. Our work and advocacy for the development of homes that are affordable and safe not only improves the quality of life for many lower income Orange County households, it also provides a foundation to building a stronger community.
Read the stories of Orange County residents who recently moved into an affordable housing development and how it has changed their lives for the better.
Thank you for helping me achieve my dream of living on my own!
I use to live with my mom and dad and it’s nice to be independent now. I love it here! I like how everything in my apartment is accessible for me. I now feel more responsible for my own things and well-being. I also like all my new friends!
People with disabilities just need a little help. They can have their own apartment but they just need some assistance.

We are very grateful! It’s a dream to have a home like this!
Before, we moved a lot and lived in overcrowded apartments. It was very difficult for our children. Our youngest son had many asthma attacks and our eldest son has ADHD.
Now, we live in a safe and affordable home. Smoking is prohibited here and my youngest son’s asthma attacks significantly decreased. With more space at our home, it has also improved my eldest son’s anxiety attacks.

This is my first place, my first HOME.
Before we moved here, our family lived in a transitional housing shelter for one year. Now, we live on our own and don’t have to worry about getting situated. We also have extra money for important necessities.
Some people think affordable housing is a slum but this is the BEST PLACE I have seen in my whole life! Thank you so much for taking the chance to invest in affordable housing! Living here has been a life-saver.
