Mutual Housing California was created in 1988 to catalyze revitalization of low-income communities by strengthening neighborhood assets—both through housing and resident involvement. The organization formed as a partnership of neighborhood residents, business representatives, housing advocates, and local government.

For the past 27 years, Mutual Housing California has developed, operated and advocated for sustainable housing that builds strong communities through resident participation and leadership development. Currently, over 3,200 residents live in over one thousand homes operated by our organization. Our residents describe our properties as safe, clean, community-oriented, and inclusive. Over the past few years we have expanded our geographic service area, moved into green property development, and increased our portfolio of affordable housing. In 2015 we completed construction of the first nationally certified zero net energy housing for renters in the United States. 

At the heart of our work is a desire to build strong communities where residents work together to enhance their individual and collective lives. An important way that we support this vision is through developing onsite programs that build upon the existing strengths of our resident members, provide opportunities for growth, and leverage relationships with external organizations and community volunteers.

To support these exciting efforts, we are seeking a passionate individual to join Mutual Housing California and Mutual Housing Management in the following positions:

Chief Executive Officer
