Bienestar’s portfolio of affordable housing includes 12 properties in two counties and five cities with a total of 507 units. Nine of those properties were built by us and three were acquired and then renovated. Nine properties are for farmworker families and three are for low-income families.
We provide homes for approximately 1200 adults and 900 children. Today 93% of our residents are Latino.
For twenty-six years, 254 of our apartments were rented only to farmworkers; i.e. at least one member of the household had to be employed in agriculture. That continues as a requirement for nine properties. 278 apartments are for working poor families working in any occupation.
The financing structures of all the properties includes federal funding sources, so the reporting and compliance requirements for the entire portfolio are very extensive and rigorous. View our Financing Sources >
We are proud of Bienestar’s history which recognized from the very beginning that buildings are not enough — resident services have always been an integral part of the plans and life of each community.
