About Abode Communities
Abode Communities is a nonprofit, social enterprise whose mission is to create service-enhanced affordable housing and socially beneficial communities that promote the social, economic, and physical transformation of underserved communities. Abode Communities harnesses the power and synergy of its professional services - real estate, architecture, and property management – to ensure the organization’s high-quality standard is brought to each community development project it touches. Its current affordable housing portfolio includes 37 communities serving nearly 7,000 extremely low-, very low- and low-income people.

Going above and beyond the development, design, and long-term ownership/operation of affordable homes, Abode Communities’ mission-critical on-site resident services program, Beyond Homes, ensures that underserved children and families, seniors and people with special needs (formerly homeless, at-risk homeless, survivors of domestic violence, mentally/physically disabled, and youth emancipated from the foster care system) can remain stable in their housing and improve their livelihoods as they work toward long term self-sufficiency. These social services are offered at 20 affordable residential communities, enhancing the lives of some 5,000 low-income people who call Abode Communities “home.”
