To create an expanding network of increasingly affordable Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to help ease the Bay Area’s housing crisis.

We strive to help combat displacement by building new, secure housing units that will be reserved for households making below 80% of Area Median Income (AMI) and prioritized for those filling essential service jobs (teachers, food workers, etc.) with long-established connections to the Bay Area.

Roots & Returns is a project under consideration/development by the Arizmendi Association of Cooperatives, in collaboration with CoEverything Design, with additional support from and the First Dollar Foundation.
