Grand View Village is a beacon – a shining light – that reflects our commitment as a non-profit affordable housing organization - bringing quality, affordable housing to Stockton that will meet the needs of our community. We are proud that it is in the heart of downtown and know that it will serve housing needs for so many people, including residents who work in the area.” states Carol J. Ornelas, CEO of VHB. “As we begin welcoming - we are proud to be building communities that provide a wide variety of services. Grand View Village offers quality units, beautiful landscapes and services that give tenants the opportunity to enjoy their living space.”
