Many Huntington Beach seniors are on fixed incomes and in need of supportive services related to health, wellness, and community support. To that end, the City of Huntington Beach along with the County of Orange and the California Department of Housing and Community Development are contracting with Jamboree Housing to build 42 housing units for qualified low-income seniors as well as seniors who are experiencing homelessness.
The apartment complex will be built on an L-shaped 0.78-acre vacant lot in the area where Main Street meets Beach Boulevard. The new homes will be within convenient walking distance to public transit, local parks, grocery stores, and medical centers.
In addition to the apartments, the complex will include one full-time case manager and a part-time supportive service coordinator on site. Jamboree Housing has committed to build using craftsman-style architecture and provide a 2,300 square-foot outdoor courtyard and small pet park.
The City and its partners are committed to providing support and services for Huntington Beach’s vulnerable senior community and this housing development dedicated to seniors in need one step to working toward that goal.
