About Wesley Housing Development Corporation

Wesley Housing is a nonprofit organization that owns and operates affordable, permanent rental housing for individuals and families at risk of homelessness, including seniors and people with disabilities and chronic diseases. We are actively engaged in residential development, property management, and resident services.

The heart and soul of Wesley Housing's mission lies in our commitment to combine affordable housing with family programs and supportive services to foster positive development and self-sufficiency for all adults, children, and families. Our four on-site Community Resource Centers offer programs and services that provide valuable skills and resources to help children achieve academic success and support adults in their efforts to earn higher wages and attain economic stability and independence. Our five on-site Resident Services Centers offer supportive services such as food assistance and linkages to public and nonprofit service providers.

Since our founding in 1974, Wesley Housing has served nearly 25,000 people and developed more than 1,800 multi-family units, investing a total of more than $30 million worth of development costs in our community. Wesley Housing currently manages a portfolio of more than 1,200 units housing more than 2,500 people.
