About CommonBond Communities


1080 Montreal Ave., St. Paul, MN 55116, US

Mission Statement

CommonBond's mission is to build stable homes, strong futures, and vibrant communities. A safe, stable, and affordable home is the foundation for everything in life. It’s the place where each person can find what they need to meet their goals and build their best life. In other words, a CommonBond community. CommonBond is an affordable housing nonprofit organization that creates communities throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and South Dakota to help people of all ages and walks of life meet their goals and thrive. With five decades of working with vulnerable populations as an affordable housing organization, we know that when people have stability in their homes, children do better in school, teens graduate, adults find jobs with wages to support their families, and older adults maintain their independence.


We believe home is the foundation for everything in life. For over 50 years, CommonBond has provided affordable, stable homes for families, veterans, and seniors. Not only do we connect residents with housing that will help them thrive, but we offer wraparound services that help folks define and achieve their own success. Programming is available to all CommonBond residents and is tied to four strategic priorities: Stability & Independence, Health and Wellness, Education & Advancement, and Community Building & Engagement. We know that through these focus areas, we’re able to support residents in finding solutions that matter. Our Advantage Services and Property Management teams work together to pro-actively support residents in a multitude of areas, such as subsidized housing, Section 8 vouchers, mentor programs for students, job training, career development, veterans programs, and much, much more.
