While First Community Housing is dedicated to housing initiatives, please note we do not assist in locating housing. For inquiries related to waitlists or rental details, please contact the property you're interested in directly. Unfortunately, we do not offer rental assistance. We are not Social Services. If you are in need of government assistance, please go to: Santa Clara Social Service.

Depending on your situation, some of the links below will be more helpful than others, but the list contains lots of information about affordable housing in the Bay Area:

  • City of San Jose Housing Search Portal: Click Here

The following FCH properties provide housing that sets aside units for special populations for the developmentally disabled, the chronically ill, and consumers of mental health services. These units are generally filled through the potential tenant's case worker or service provider (like Housing Choices Coalition), but you may call and inquire about availability.

    • 109 senior, low-income housing units, with 34 units reserved for chronically ill seniors and 5 for consumers of mental health services.
