San Rafael Commons provides 83 affordable apartment homes for the disabled as well as for residents with at least one household member 62 or older.

BRIDGE acquired an existing complex convenient to transit, local shopping, and services to ensure that the property would permanently serve extremely-low-income seniors and the disabled.  A renovation program increased the quality of the buildings and improved the living environment. The acquisition involved a “bargain sale” donation by the seller, providing affordability without the need for public subsidies.
