Community Impact Report


Fairstead is dedicated to creating and operating vibrant communities across the country. We demonstrate this every day, most clearly in the thoughtful way our team designs, builds, and manages the properties our residents are proud to call home. We organize our efforts around five core Community Impact pillars: health and wellness, bridging the digital divide, environmental and social justice, education and workforce opportunities, and financial literacy. Our Community Impact Report explains how these pillars drive both our actions today and our plans for tomorrow.


ESG Report


At Fairstead, we endeavor each and every day to make the world a better place. Our focus on creating a positive impact applies not only to immediate stakeholders — residents, local partners, team members, and investors — but also to our cities, to our country, and to our planet. This simple but lofty ambition is integral to our organization’s mission and fundamental to our achievement. Fairstead aspires to create high-quality, sustainable housing for all, regardless of income. We know that to do so effectively, we must adhere to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles that enhance the lives of our residents and their surrounding communities, mitigate or reverse harm to the ecosystem, and meet the moral and ethical standards of the institutions and individuals who entrust us with their capital.
