Meet Lan

"Without participating in this program, I would not know how to start my ADU project, from application, City

Codes, permit, choosing designers, finding a contractor, materials, appliance, etc. With Hello Housing support and assistance, my dream to retire early with ADU rental income became true!"

Meet Mike

"The greatest benefit we experienced was the assurance and peace of mind that we had an experienced and knowledgeable partner alongside us as we embarked upon a major real estate project we had very little experience in doing. It started with an idea, and then proceeded with excellent support all along the way."


Meet Maria and Tom

"It's overwhelming taking on a project of this size.  HelloADU's team taught us how the process works. With their support we knew our options, what questions to ask, and had the confidence to ask for what we wanted. We absolutely recommend working with the HelloADU team.  It is so nice having someone knowledgeable holding your hand!"


Funders can have an outsized impact in our communities

ADUs are small, but their impact on the affordable housing crisis is enormous.  We are helping communities increase housing stock and density using low-impact solutions that enrich single-family residential neighborhoods
