Affordable Housing can help provide healthy environments for families and individuals. Our architects and planners have designed new construction of over 2,300 affordable housing units for low-income families and individuals.

For information about rental opportunities please contact: Caritas Management Corporation.

Minna Park Family Housing

Minna Park Family Housing is a four story, twenty-six unit new construction apartment building that provides affordable family housing in the dense “South of Market” area of San Francisco. 

The ground floor consists of a parking garage, residential units, community rooms, lobby, office and utilities. The second, third and fourth floors provide one, two, three and four bedroom flats and two story townhouse units. The units were organized around a courtyard providing exterior walkways and additional outdoor space for the families as well as improved natural light and ventilation to the units. 

Tutubi Park, the semi-public park adjacent to the apartments was designed and named with extensive input by the neighborhood residents.

Connecticut Street Court

The Connecticut Street Court development was created to provide affordable housing for low-income residents who have an interest with initiating family business live-work opportunities, or enhancing their income levels toward self-sufficiency.

555 Ellis Family Apartments

The Family Apartments at 555 Ellis Street are 38 units of new construction for low income senior and family housing. The five-story building with studios, two and three bedroom units  was developed jointly by San Francisco Network Ministries and Asian Neighborhood Design in the Tenderloin to provide much needed family housing and to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood. The four-story wood frame structure over a one story concrete podium is finished in stucco and designed with bays complementary to the surrounding neighborhood and the Bay Area Regional Style. The project has two community rooms, a computer lab, an outdoor garden with play structure, a meditative garden and a rooftop garden.
