We go beyond the “sticks and bricks” of building affordable housing. We are always on the look out for housing problems that can be solved with the help of creative financing, design and program management. The diverse background of our team has uniquely positioned us to create new programs that meet the needs of our stakeholders.

Hello Housing, in partnership with Alameda County’s Housing & Community Development, created AC Boost, a down payment assistance loan program funded by taxpayers through Measure A1. This innovative program gives preference to educators, first responders, and people who have been displaced from Alameda County and is designed from the start to give buyers a boost in the marketplace.

Hello Housing and MidPen Housing, with the support of a grant from the San Mateo County’s Housing Innovation Fund, are raising a Preservation Fund to support the purchase of existing single-family homes for use as permanently affordable housing in neighborhoods experiencing tremendous price appreciation and displacement of long-time residents.
