Exceptional Development of Supportive Housing
Pilot Housing Fair
As part of a streamlined effort to ensure vulnerable individuals get housed quickly, we partnered with the Regional Task Force on the Homeless and the San Diego Housing Commission to hold the first lease up housing fair in San Diego, creating a new model that is now utilized throughout the community for supportive housing lease up.
Efficient Lease Up
We have mastered the supportive housing lease up process, often achieving full-occupancy within two to three months of receiving Certificate of Occupancy.
A Welcoming Home
We furnish all supportive housing apartments so residents have a bed, nightstand, desk, and space to store clothing. We work with local partners, on-site service providers, and other donors to ensure each apartment also comes furnished with basic necessities such as pots, pans, silverware, dishware, towels and bedsheets so that each resident moves into an apartment that feels like home.
We circulate annual surveys to our supportive housing residents to collect their input on services, property management, and the overall community. Using this feedback, we take lessons learned and implement them at our new developments moving forward, and identify opportunities for improvements at our existing communities.
We utilize a combination of live monitoring and on-site guard security services to support resident safety.
