West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation builds new high-quality apartment buildings and has renovated older ones that provide housing and services to lower and fixed-income people using environmentally sustainable materials and other components that protect the environment. WHCHC has apartment communities in the cities of West Hollywood, Los Angeles and Glendale. We maintain a development pipeline of three to four projects in development. Please view our project gallery to find out more about our affordable apartment communities.


WHCHC has three core departments that work together to create housing, increase opportunities for stability, and meet essential needs of under-served individuals and communities. With the goal of keeping vulnerable people housed and stable and breaking the cycle of poverty, these departments include:

  • Housing Development: WHCHC builds high-quality affordable rental housing. Communities range in size from 10 units up to 104 units, and are designed to be architecturally distinguished, environmentally sustainable, and amenity rich. Universal design elements are incorporated into all new projects to minimize displacement as residents age in place.
  • Asset Management: To preserve the value of each apartment community, property improvements, such as renovations and repairs due to normal aging, are regularly completed to maintain safe and attractive living environments. WHCHC’s Asset Management Team also oversees onsite building management.
  • Resident Services: WHCHC facilitates residents' mental, emotional and physical well-being through initial needs assessment, individualized service plans, lifelong learning workshops, and linkages to resources, such as overall healthcare, transportation, and food.

WHCHC apartment communities range in size from eight units to 100 units. Each building is unique and designed to seamlessly fit within the community. Our buildings are environmentally sensitive and architecturally distinguished in order to reflect and complement their surrounding neighborhoods. After buildings are completed, we maintain a high standard of asset management and take pride in the way our developments enhance the neighborhoods in which they are built.

The impacts of the lives of people who live in affordable housing is remarkable. Many of our residents had been struggling for many years. The majority of our residents are extremely low- income and fall below the federal poverty line. Once they receive the keys to their new WHCHC apartment, a sense of relief and feelings of safety and security help them to stabilize their lives. The critical resident services available to all residents free-of-charge help to keep them housed and thrive.

Our residents reflect the diversity of southern California and include people of every race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical capability, mental ability, and veteran status.

WHCHC serves:

  • Seniors
  • Families
  • Individuals
  • People with special needs
  • People with mental illness
  • People with chronic health conditions 
  • People with HIV/AIDS
  • LGBT community
  • People experiencing homelessness
  • Transition-age youth
I finally have peace of mind. After 18 years as a behavioral therapist within LAUSD, I didn’t think my daughter and I would ever be displaced. We spent years staying with friends, family and sometimes hotels, nearly depleting my 401(k). Now we are home.
