saratoga Community Housing

A grassroots non-profit organization formed in response to the skyrocketing real-estate prices that have created a shortage of truly affordable housing here in Island County. Using the traditional Community Land Trust (CLT) model, Saratoga Community Housing acquires land and homes to provide affordable home ownership opportunities for lower to moderate income residents. ​HFHIC partners with Saratoga Community Housing to acquire land that ensures that the housing will be available to low income families for years to come.

For more information about Saratoga Community Housing and the important work they do, please visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
