For more than 20 years, Hollywood Community Housing Corporation has been improving the quality of life in underserved communities in Los Angeles. We have built and continue to maintain over 700 units of affordable housing for low-income families, the homeless, the disabled and seniors, and we offer numerous supportive services to our residents and their neighbors. HCHC turns blighted properties into award-winning multifamily housing that improves neighborhoods. Help us to do more!

Housing Development -- HCHC develops safe, attractive and affordable homes for some of the lowest-income residents of our community. Our buildings have won awards for construction, design and historic preservation.

Resident Services -- HCHC provides homes for large families, seniors and Special Needs residents. Resident Service Coordination is the foundation for successfully housing individuals and families experiencing a variety of challenges. The support we provide our residents comes in many forms.

Asset Management -- HCHC constructs new buildings and rehabilitates architecturally significant, deteriorated properties for affordable housing use. Through good fiscal planning and appropriate staffing, HCHC makes every effort to keep its buildings looking as clean and attractive as the day they opened.

Volunteer Program -- HCHC’s Food Pantry is managed through our Volunteer Program. The Volunteer Program also assesses resident needs, links residents to community services and provides a variety of activities and informative programs for residents.

Step Up on Colorado (Kaufmann Apartments)

Step up on Colorado (Kaufmann Apartments) is a project developed by Hollywood Community Housing Corporation in partnership with Step Up on Second that plans to achieve Platinum LEED-certification (the highest level of certification).

What does it mean to be LEED-Certified?

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a designation from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. For a project to receive LEED for Homes Certification, it must meet requirements in eight different environmental qualities:

  1. Sustainable Sites
  2. Water Efficiency
  3. Energy and Atmosphere
  4. Materials & Resources
  5. Indoor Environmental Quality
  6. Locations and Linkages
  7. Awareness and Education
  8. Innovation and Design

LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.
