Given the challenges and competing agendas that arise when developing housing in high cost areas like California, it is important to ground our work in four basic principles.

SUSTAINABLE We invest in creating scalable, replicable, green
housing solutions through creative financing and public policy.

PERSON-CENTERED Whether we are creating housing for
someone with a disability or someone with a low income, the
needs of the person guide our work.

INTEGRATED We believe it is good for society when people
with different backgrounds, struggles and points of view bump up against each other.

INSPIRING We make sure that every environment we develop
makes people feel uplifted and inspired when they walk through
the door.
