Welcome to First Community Housing

We design, develop and manage affordable housing for low-income households. Each of our developments is specifically designed to complement its unique neighborhood context. The purpose of this website is to introduce you to a few of our properties and to highlight our commitment to good design, incorporation of green building materials and long term sustainability.

FCH is an award-winning, California 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, Public Benefit Housing Development Corporation, located in San Jose, California. Since 1986, FCH has created housing for more than 3,200 low-income residents in 16 affordable rental housing developments (over 1,300 units) throughout the San Francisco Bay region. The low-income populations we serve include families, senior citizens, and individuals as well as special needs populations such as the chronically ill, the developmentally disabled, and consumers of mental health services.

Our developments have won recognition for architectural design and sustainability, as well as excellence in property and asset management.
