Foundation Communities

Foundation Communities (FC) is an Austin-based nonprofit that owns and manages 22 multifamily and single resident occupancy (SRO) communities – 19 in Austin and three in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. FC’s goal is to end the cycle of poverty using its unique housing-plus-services approach. This innovative model combines affordable housing with social services to empower thousands of low-income residents and neighbors to achieve educational success, financial stability, and healthier lifestyles. Foundation Communities also works to encourage a culture of sustainability throughout the organization by employing deep green building strategies and sustainable operations and maintenance policies that focus on energy and water conservation, healthy indoor air, and waste reduction. Many of FC's properties are LEED certified and hold Austin Energy Green Building 5-star ratings.
