Why MidPen Housing? 
At MidPen, we build communities that change lives and revitalize neighborhoods. We work every day to create a world where everyone has a quality home they can afford and equitable access to opportunity. Our goal is to develop communities that enhance cities and catalyze growth and opportunity for residents.

With a “three companies, one mission” approach, we develop affordable housing, provide professional property management for all of our communities, and coordinate robust onsite support programs to help our residents advance their well-being.?We are one of the nation’s largest non-profit developers and owners of affordable housing — to date, we’ve developed over 120 communities across 11 Northern California counties and provide affordable homes for more than 20,000 (and growing) low-income working families, seniors, and people with special needs. The lack of affordable housing in the Bay Area is our reason for doing what we do, and we want you to be a part of the journey toward social, economic, and racial equity.

About Property Management 
The Property Management team is responsible for operating and maintaining our beautiful communities, but beyond that, they are relationship builders — and the heart and soul of MidPen. Rooted in our ICARE values (Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence), and our Guiding Principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, Property Management works closely with our residents, our community partners, and their fellow MidPenners — including close collaboration with our Resident Services team.
