Trellis helps communities grow

Trellis provides stability for people and communities as a nonprofit developer, manager, and owner of affordable housing.


Our passion is to serve as a vehicle for organizations and communities seeking to create affordable housing. We bring the expertise needed to conceptualize, create, and execute beautiful, dignified housing that provides long-term stability for people earning lower incomes.

Our Properties

Our 50 properties, totaling 4,500 units of housing, are primarily located in the Twin Cities, with a few in Greater Minnesota.

Property Management

Trellis Management (formerly BDC Management) provides property management services for Trellis Co. properties. Our management team understands the unique circumstances facing many of the residents we serve and works to ensure stable, sustainable housing can be achieved.

Rooted in Affordable Housing

Trellis Co. was founded in 1991 on the belief that long-term nonprofit ownership is the best way to sustain high quality affordable housing. Being a trusted partner is our core commitment. Together, we can cultivate the stability that people and communities need to flourish.
