About CommonBond Communities

For 44 years, CommonBond has been working to provide a home for those most in need in our community, and over time has grown to be the largest nonprofit provider of affordable rental homes with life-enhancing services in the Upper Midwest. From its humble beginnings, CommonBond has made a dramatic impact on the lives of more than 40,000 people. CommonBond's mission is to build stable homes, strong futures and vibrant communities with the vision that every person has a dignified, affordable home that supports independence and advancement within a flourishing community. Our core values of respect, integrity, partnership, innovation, and excellence are evident in our work. Over 11,000 people - families, seniors, and people with disabilities and other barriers - call CommonBond home. On average, resident household income is $21,000 a year. The CommonBond model - housing with support services - transforms lives and creates stability in communities. Core resident services, called Advantage Services, include academic, mentoring, and social programs for children, wellness care and preventative services for seniors, and career/employment services for adults.
