Business Overview

Our Story

A home of one’s own: it’s core to what it means to be human. Very few people choose to live on the street, in a shelter or institution. For many, supportive housing – affordability plus supportive services – is key to finding and maintaining a home.

At Brilliant Corners, we’ve seen amazing things happen when people embrace this Housing First mindset and a commitment to align the right housing and supportive service resources. With public and private partners, we’re building new, scalable supportive housing platforms to rapidly house thousands of formerly homeless people and those at risk of homelessness each year. We’ve also partnered with state and local agencies to create community-based housing for over 1,000 previously institutionalized Californians with developmental disabilities.

We are honored to be part of this collaborative work – meeting each person where they are, advocating for transformative systems change, aligning existing and new resources for better results. We embrace the challenge of scaling supportive housing solutions, confident that together, we can bring about the better world our hearts know is possible.
