About Us

Paladin Community Development was formed in 1997 by Phillip E. Ellen in an effort to help bring quality affordable housing to communities throughout the southeast. The name Paladin comes from the popular 1960's western TV show, "Have Gun will Travel". Paladin (which means a defender of a cause) was the lead character who traveled from town to town fighting for justice for the powerless. Listen to the "Ballad of Paladin".

Since it's formation over 17 year ago, Paladin has worked with cities in 7 states to help meet their housing needs by providing homes to working families and the elderly. With over 1,300 units, Paladin is one of the leading providers of affordable housing in the southeast.
