Mission Statement

Building housing, hope and futures for the well-being of working families. Quality affordable housing is essential for individuals, families and communities to thrive. We envision and develop communities where residents find dignity, hope, confidence, skills, and courage to pursue their dreams. Bienestar believes that all work is honorable and champions those who provide essential labor to the community. We work in the midst of the poorest neighborhoods to unleash the potential of people to improve the quality of life for themselves, their children, their families, and the community. Formerly Housing Development Corporation, Bienestar has provided quality, affordable housing and resident services to farmworkers and other low income families since 1981.
