Housing is one of Johannesburg's key priorities, and the City is determined to house all its people. With this in mind, in March 2004 it established its own municipal-owned housing company, the Johannesburg Social Housing Company (Joshco).

The City of Johannesburg is the sole shareholder in Joshco, and the company's mandate is to provide quality affordable housing to the citizens of Johannesburg.

Joshco provides and manages affordable rental housing stock for the lower income market as part of its contribution to eradicating the housing backlog. The social housing products it develops and manages are predominantly well-located medium to high-density rental flats that are leased to tenants at an affordable monthly rate.

Joshco is overseen by the member of the mayoral committee responsible for housing, Strike Ralegoma.

It has its own website.
