Building homes and providing services that move community members from insecurity to stability.

West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit affordable housing development corporation founded in 1986. With the stability of housing, we transform the lives of low-income individuals and families. Today, WHCHC continues to serve West Hollywood and has expanded into Los Angeles and neighboring areas.

Over the years, WHCHC has evolved. Our mission remains the same. Our values of quality and integrity resonate through everything we do, the affordable housing we build, and the resident services we provide. Without WHCHC, people would be forced to live in substandard housing, overcrowded housing, or be so severely rent-burdened they would be left without any resources for the rest of life’s necessities. With your support, we address the housing crisis and provide more community members with high-quality affordable homes and essential services.

Affordable housing has truly transformed my life. Not only my life, but my entire family and generations to come. It’s given me the stability to focus on work and school.
