About Us

First Community Housing is an award-winning California 501(c)(3) Non-Profit, Public Benefit Housing Development Corporation located in San Jose, California.  Since 1986, FCH has created housing for more than 2,200 low-income residents in 19 affordable rental housing developments (over 1,350 units) throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.  Each of our developments is thoughtfully designed to complement its unique community, neighborhood and environmental context, as well as respond to the needs of the people we serve.  FCH has been a pioneered of the integrated design-build process, leading to innovative design and sustainability.  Low-income populations we serve include families, seniors, individuals, and those who are chronically ill, formerly homeless, developmentally disabled, and clients of mental health services.  Our developments have won local and national recognition for architectural design and sustainability, as well as excellence in property and asset management.  Six projects in our portfolio have achieved certification of LEED Gold or higher.  We have declared LEED Platinum certification as a baseline for all new projects, and our design standards emphasize transit-oriented sites, resident health and wellness, and net-positive environmental performance.
