Engaging Communities

Engaging communities and giving back to those in which we build stands at the heart of our culture. At the Domain Companies, we believe that development is about more than just the designing and building of exceptional properties. It is about how these efforts strengthen the community making it greater, and our ability to improve neighborhoods and the lives of those within them.

To achieve this, we have developed a multi-tiered approach to help in engaging communities and maximizing our impact. Our strategy is designed to achieve measurable outcomes that advance the life trajectories of low-income residents, promote community-wide healthy living and cultural enrichment initiatives, create opportunities for young people, and strengthen workforce development.

Resident Services
Domain's residents come from all walks of life, so we strive to provide our residents in-need with support services and valuable growth and development opportunities. Whether it's helping seniors live an active lifestyle, treating affordable residents to a day at the opera, facilitating photography classes for young people, or distributing "Back to School Bags" to students, Domain is committed to providing first-rate resident services programs.
Community Engagement
Domain believes in facilitating impactful volunteer opportunities for our residents and employees. Annual community days see all Domain employees gather together to contribute to major volunteer projects, and events are scheduled throughout the year to support community initiatives and local non-profits. Domain also takes an active role in local philanthropic efforts, supporting organizations making a positive impact on the community.
My Community Program
“MyCommunity” includes our Resident Program and Employee Program, both designed to encourage non-profit support and participation. The Resident Program sees a donation made to one of three non-profit organizations of the resident’s choosing each time a lease is signed or renewed. The Employee Program allows employees to devote work time volunteering with an organization of their choosing.
