Connected Communities

Connected Communities is WinnCompanies’ collective impact approach to true community development. It is our goal to ensure that each community is stable, connected and empowered.

Our Approach

Connected Communities equips our residents, team members and community partners with the technology, tools and training to understand, support and engage their communities in creating more opportunities for all. 


We support each community to define its own success and establish meaningful community development goals. Starting with basic housing stabilization programs, our teams use an evidence-based action planning framework to address common systemic barriers for residents.


We are proud to be a preferred housing partner for nonprofit service providers, community organizations, and advocacy groups to develop and implement impactful and innovative programs, interventions, and solutions.

Our Approach

By working with our strong network of community partners and leaders, WinnCompanies believes resident services is so much more than just eviction prevention and resource referrals- in partnership with the community, this work creates real, lasting impact.
