Who are we?

The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB) is an entrepreneurial real estate developer and owner. Our mission is to build and sustain strong communities where all people can thrive. We envision a world with vibrant, safe, and inclusive neighborhoods where all people live in healthy homes with equitable access to resources and opportunities to pursue their dreams, and we work to make that vision a reality. Founded in 1964, TCB currently owns/manages 12,000+ units of rental housing across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest.

Why work at TCB?

Opportunity is not equally available across households and regions. America has enormous racial and economic segregation because of government backed policies such as redlining, unequal access to nonpredatory homeownership loans, racial covenants, and exclusionary zoning. As a result, quality housing in good neighborhoods with reasonable access to jobs is out of reach for many Americans. At the same time, many communities lack the necessary investments in housing, amenities, services, and commercial development to provide a good quality of life. Over the next five years TCB aims to make vital contributions that address this fundamental opportunity gap, by adding to the stock of affordable quality homes and helping to provide services and amenities in thriving communities for all people.

TCB's commitment to diversity is driven in part by the fact that TCB serves?diverse communities,?in many cities communities which are largely people of color.?
