Housing & Support

We believe a home is the foundation for everything in life. And helping our residents overcome the injustices surrounding a stable home and equitable future is at the core of everything we do. Not only do we connect residents with the housing that will help them thrive, but we also make sure they can stay there for years to come. In fact, our residents’ average time in a CommonBond property is 5 years. That’s five years to save up, to make connections in the community, and establish healthy habits to stay on the track to stability.

It’s not just housing assistance. It’s a launch pad to a new life full of opportunity and pride for our residents. A place to call their own. A place to raise a family. A place of peace and rest.

Fighting Poverty, One Family at a Time

When there’s stability at home, individuals and families are set up to thrive in every other area of life. We also know an affordable apartment alone doesn’t make a home. The buildings we manage are just the first step in creating bright tomorrows and attacking poverty head-on. Our communities build a sense of belonging and offer the support our residents need to help reach their goals.

We own or manage over 100 high-quality, affordable apartments and townhomes across Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. We provide an integration of housing and on-site services that support residents each and every day. Our services give kids the tools they need to be successful in school and life, and help adults get better jobs so their wages can support their families. Our tailored services also support seniors to live independently longer and assist veterans with maintaining stability.

Support, Encouragement, and Celebration

Our Advantage Services team gets in front of obstacles that threaten what residents need so badly — a stable home. Even when the going gets tough, we believe CommonBond residents deserve access to the tools to build their best lives. Staff at locations across our communities provide services like tutoring, eviction prevention, legal help, resume building and so much more.
