Home is the foundation for everything in life. That’s why it’s been our mission since 1971 to offer quality, dignified affordable housing and life-changing support services. Our model has always been about supporting residents in finding stability and achieving their goals. It’s why we’re more than housing—we combine quality affordable homes with our on-site Advantage Services because we believe that with the right support and opportunities, all people can thrive. Today, over 13,000 people—families, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities and other barriers—call a CommonBond community “home.”
If creating vibrant, stable communities sounds like important work to you, join us!

CommonBond Communities offers an employee-driven culture that values work/life balance. Our core values are RESPECT, INTEGRITY, PARTNERSHIP, INNOVATION and EXCELLENCE. We live these values and look for people who embody them to represent our organization in the community. If this sounds like you, please keep reading!
CommonBond is excited to announce an opening for a Caretaker at three of our properties in the Northern Twin Cities Area.
