Review for MUTUAL HOUSING CALIFORNIA, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a legal services attorney who provides no cost civil legal services to low-income communities in furtherance of an anti-poverty agenda, I have worked with SMHA to improve the scope and quality of housing that is safe, supportive, and in which it is affordable to live. I have watched as SMHA has advanced its agenda and been at the cutting edge of green building and design of its beautiful residential units, stood at SMHA's side as it faced and overcame wrong-headed opposition to its new projects in opportunity-rich communities, and watched with great admiration as SMHA's dedicated and highly skilled staff creates stable, supportive living communities for low-income people and families. SMHA is a premier low-income housing developer and receives my highest recommendation.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I helped draft a ground lease that would be used as part of SMHA's housing land trust -- an innovative mechanism to make home ownership affordable to low-income families and yet allow those families to build equity.
