Irvine-based Jamboree Housing Corp., in conjunction with H.O.M.E.S. (Helping Our Mentally Ill Experience Success), is introducing Diamond Apartment Homes, an affordable, quality and permanent supportive complex in Anaheim. The official grand opening ceremony takes place April 14.
Mayor Curt Pringle, Supervisor Chris Norby, executives from Jamboree and H.O.M.E.S., as well as representatives from the Anaheim Housing Authority, Anaheim Redevelopment Agency and California Department of Housing and Community Development – Multihousing Program are among those attending the event.
Diamond Apartment Homes is an integral part of the city of Anaheim's commitment to expanding the development of cost-effective housing to more than 1,400 units in the next five years. Diamond is among 17 remnant parcels purchased by the city from the Orange County Transit Authority to recycle back into use. It is one of three affordable housing properties Jamboree is developing.
The residential community was co-developed by H.O.M.E.S., a nonprofit that provides permanent supportive independent housing for adults with disabilities. Rental housing that serves the chronically homeless or those with mental illness is typically designed for individuals and is predominately studio and one-bedroom units, according to Jamboree. But Diamond will allow families to remain together under one roof.
All households include one adult member who was chronically homeless and eligible for services under the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). The multifamily development will be home to 25 families who earn no more than $30,120. It is currently more than 80 percent leased.
