Bringing much-needed affordable housing options to the Mankato community

Stable homes. Strong futures. Vibrant communities.

A safe, stable, and affordable home is the foundation for everything in life. It’s the place where each person can find what they need to meet their goals and build their best life. In other words, a CommonBond community. We create communities to help people of all ages and walks of life meet their goals and thrive.

With nearly five decades of working with vulnerable populations, we know when people have stability in their homes, children do better in school, teens graduate, adults find jobs with wages to support their families, and older adults maintain their independence.

We envision a day when all people have access to a place they can call their own. A home where lives flourish and communities are enriched.

Together, we can make this happen. Join us in meeting our goal to create a home for 15,000 people by 2025.
