Communities Icon

Our value of Standout Citizenship exemplifies how we strive to benefit our neighbors and communities. From our implementation of sustainable Smart Home technology to company-driven philanthropy, Invitation Homes is committed to improving and giving back to the communities our associates and residents call home.

Community Investment

Invitation Homes has invested over $2 billion rehabilitating homes in the communities we serve.

We also take pride in giving back through philanthropy, such as our “There’s No Place Like Home” scholarship contest.  In addition, Invitation Homes associates receive 20 hours of paid time off to volunteer in their communities each year. They have used this time to build homes and shelters, contribute and package food and school supplies, and provide other needed support in their communities.


Invitation Homes puts residents first with our best-in-class ProCare Property Management. From welcoming residents with an in-person home orientation at move-in, to making residents’ lives easier with our Smart Home technology offering, to providing mid-lease customer care visits, and 24/7 maintenance service – we strive to provide our residents with a worry-free leasing lifestyle.

Resident Engagement

We take pride in consistently providing residents with friendly and professional service. That is why we ask our residents for their feedback after every interaction.  Our associates’ compensation is linked to the quality of resident care they provide. We recognize standout resident service with quarterly Genuine Care awards. See what our residents have to say about leasing with Invitation Homes at

Wellness Initiatives & Benefits

Our company’s workplace wellness initiatives, such as wellness challenges and onsite health and wellness services (e.g. flu shots, massages, yoga classes) promote healthy habits and demonstrate managerial support for associates’ physical and emotional well-being.

Corporate Governance Guidelines

Invitation Homes is committed to sound corporate governance practices and the highest ethical standards.  Our commitment to good corporate governance is reflected in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which describe the views and policies of our Board of Directors on a wide range of governance topics. We have adopted a variety of best practices in corporate governance, such as:

  • All directors are elected each year (shareholder vote required to stagger)
  • Majority of directors are independent
  • Opted out of Maryland Unsolicited Takeovers Act
  • No stockholder rights plan (“poison pill”)
  • Code of Business Conduct and Ethics contains officer prohibition against pledging or borrowing against company stock

  • Code of Business Conduct and Ethics contains anti-fraud and conflict of interest policies

We have instituted a range of other corporate governance best practices, including limits on the number of directorships held by our directors to prevent “overboarding,” a robust director education program, rotation of committee members, regular board and committee evaluations, and a commitment to board refreshment and diversity.

Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

We believe it is critically important to maintain a corporate culture that demands integrity and reflects ethical values. The Invitation Homes Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is a tool to help guide us as we collaborate to accomplish our goals together, while holding ourselves individually responsible for our work and accountable for our actions.

The Code also applies to members of the Board of Directors of our company.

To facilitate enforcement of the Code, we maintain a confidential, anonymous hotline for associates to report any concerns about financial or reporting improprieties, workplace issues, or ethical matters.
