Over forty years ago, TELACU was founded as a pioneering institution committed to service, empowerment, advancement, and the creation of self-sufficiency.
In 1988, TELACU ventured into providing affordable housing for our growing senior population by constructing the TELACU Senior Housing complex in Hawthorne, California. TELACU’s portfolio expanded rapidly and, in only 8 short years, grew to 11 HUD-subsidized projects with over 750 residential units throughout Southern California. Utilizing TELACU’s unique business model—based on the belief that there isn’t a more viable business venture than one that is economically sound, enhances the community, and positively impacts people’s lives—TELACU established TELACU Residential Management (TRM) in 1996 to oversee its emerging housing portfolio. Since then, TELACU’s portfolio has grown to 28 residential complexes for the elderly and disabled. Under TRM’s administration, these projects consistently set the standard for providing affordable, quality housing in a secure and comfortable environment for our growing elderly population.
Recognized as a growing leader in the property management industry, TELACU has been approached by outside property owners to manage their housing portfolios. In response, TELACU founded TELACU Property Management (TPM) in 2002 to manage these third-party properties. TPM’s partners provide affordable housing to the elderly, the disabled, families, and those with special needs. These partners enjoy the security and peace of mind that comes with knowing TPM brings the same level of professionalism and customer service to conventional rental housing that TRM brings to subsidized housing.
Together, TRM and TPM manages over 2,500 residential units, and each resident is given the highest priority. At TELACU, our absolute commitment is to enhance the quality of life for those whom we serve.
