Building Community Through Housing

Affordable housing.
It’s about all of us.

Housing Resources Bainbridge (HRB) is Bainbridge Island’s only nonprofit affordable housing provider and advocate.

As a community land trust, we develop and manage permanently affordable homes, for rent and sale, and steward these resources and land for community good. By making it possible for people of diverse backgrounds and incomes to live on Bainbridge, we are building a more equitable, inclusive, and healthy community.
