Augusta Communities is a non-profit housing organization that was founded in 1998 to provide affordable housing opportunities for households of modest means through the acquisition, rehabilitation or preservation of existing mobilehome park communities.
Unlike for-profit owners, Augusta Communities does not make rent, maintenance, capital improvement or other ownership decisions based on optimizing profits. We make these decisions based on how we can make our communities cleaner, more stable, and enjoyable places to live, while keeping our focus on affordability.
Augusta Communities is particularly sensitive to the impact rent increases can have on the homeowners living in our mobilehome parks. In our parks, rent increases are often lower than permitted under local rent control ordinances. We also offer rent subsidies to qualified households because protecting residents from large or unanticipated rent increases is important.
Augusta Communities is actively involved in bettering our neighborhoods and enriching the lives our residents. We build playgrounds, provide home improvement assistance, give away school supplies, offer scholarships, and sponsor summer camps, and staff nutritional, social and recreational programs for residents of all ages.
