Affordable homes are the building blocks to transforming lives.


Satellite Affordable Housing Associates (SAHA) provides quality affordable homes and services that empower people and strengthen neighborhoods.

SAHA begins from the idea that every person deserves a home. Our work is inspired by a belief that quality homes and empowering services should be in reach for all of the Bay Area’s community members and that despite the many obstacles to providing housing for people with low-incomes and special needs, this goal is possible.

SAHA’s innovative properties provide more than 4,000 residents in seven counties in northern California with much-needed affordable housing and services. With a commitment to high-quality design and thoughtful, ongoing supportive services, we empower our residents to build better lives and create healthier, safer communities.

SAHA was created out of the strengths of two of the Bay Area’s leaders in providing affordable housing for low-income and special needs populations, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates. We want to advance the field of affordable housing, and guide our work in housing development, property management, and resident services by the following principles:

  • We believe that every person deserves a home
  • We commit to communities for the long term
  • Our comprehensive housing services empower our residents to thrive
  • High quality design inspires people and builds community
  • Green building practices lead to a healthy, sustainable society
  • Innovation and thoughtful risk-taking are part of how we pursue excellence
  • Financial health and sustainability are essential to the endurance of our mission
  • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are fundamental to our work
