Housing Communities

A decent, safe place to call “home” is oftentimes associated with the American dream.

In recent years, however, numerous studies have confirmed that an increasing number of us are confronted with the widening gap between the cost of housing and our ability to pay for it. Housing costs vary greatly in San Diego County, but one thing is clear: low-income households face a difficult search for decent housing. MAAC addresses this need by operating comprehensive housing communities that offer more than just shelter; most communities have onsite STEP Centers that offer supportive services, as well as channels to all of MAAC’s programs and services are available at each property.

Affordable housing benefits more than just its residents; it is a benefit to community as whole. Research has found that affordable housing promotes family financial stability, increase in business for local merchants and enhances local property values.

MAAC’s innovative, holistic approach to housing has claimed national recognition and numerous awards. To date, MAAC has developed nearly 1,000 units of affordable housing across the county.
