Six Ways We’re Defining Excellence in Affordable Housing

Embrace Living Property Solutions has managed affordable communities for more than 125 years. We help owners and developers by creating operational efficiencies, maintaining property assets and enriching residents’ lives so that their communities can sustain and grow to meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities for future decades.

Personalized Resident Enrichment

We take pride in offering more than just housing for residents. Our on-site social service coordinators work to understand the needs of each resident, whether it be transportation, mental health and counseling services, health and wellness activities, medical treatments or socialization opportunities.

10-Year Property Visioning

We maintain each property under our portfolio with tremendous care and consideration to every detail. Our team spends time developing a plan, complete with innovative facility maintenance ideas, community partnership considerations and energy efficiency recommendations that can help realize a property's value for the future.

Affordable Housing Advocacy

As a nonprofit organization, we prioritize various advocacy initiatives throughout the year. From meetings with local officials to national rallies alongside organizations like LeadingAge and Council for Health and Human Service Ministries (CHHSM), we will always advocate for quality housing options for seniors and people with disabilities.

Community Partnerships

With every property, we take time to understand the needs, governance and culture of the greater community. This approach helps us know more about residents’ backgrounds and the nonprofit and business partners that can help our communities thrive every day.

Servant Leadership Model

Our team members strive to empower each other so that everyone has the tools to lead and advance our properties. Our leadership model is a key reason employees stay at our organization and build their career. It’s why we’re consistently rated a Great Place to Work in senior affordable housing within the U.S.

Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Our teams include community managers, assistant managers, social service coordinators and facility maintenance associates. Together, their variety of expertise ensures resident and property needs are being met with the highest standards. Teams work to build skills in all job areas, helping to keep our properties mission-focused and successful at all times.

Steps to successfully manage property redevelopment while maintaining quality resident experiences

Resident Story: Ken

Ken is a sports fanatic. He loves the Chicago Bears, Chicago White Sox, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ken isn’t afraid to show his soft spot for Cavaliers all star, Lebron James, either. Most times, he is watching his favorite team play on television, and if there is a rivalry game taking place, it’s safe to say the “smack talk” will begin. Just ask Lisa, the community’s assistant manager that favors a Cavalier’s foe. Together, they’re always campaigning for their team’s victory against the other.
