Las Palmas is an affordable housing development corporation that specializes in enhancing the lives of residents in our housing communities through social service programs.
Currently, Las Palmas serves over 12,600 residents at 68 affordable housing communities across California. Each apartment complex offers comprehensive services to all interested residents at our on-site community and recreational centers. Culturally sensitive services are provided to all of our residents, including the most needy low income populations: single parent families, large families living on welfare, senior citizens living on a fixed income, and mentally and physically challenged individuals. We are committed to assisting our residents in meeting their special needs through programs and services. The needs of our residents are formally assessed. The programs are then provided based on the input from the residents.
Las Palmas develops and implements supportive services, designed to provide residents with new opportunities to learn, excel and become self-sufficient by focusing on life skills training and education. Our programs are provided in multiple languages and are offered at no cost to our residents.
