Long Beach, California: Anchor Place Adds Housing for Veterans and Others Experiencing Homelessness to the Century Villages at Cabrillo

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities, apply sustainable features and practices, and increase access to public transportation. The projects featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives. Each report outlines a project's objectives and the development strategies used to achieve them.

In the city of Long Beach, California, the Century Villages at Cabrillo (CVC) provide supportive housing for more than 1,500 people who experienced or were at risk of homelessness, including veterans, Native Americans, and persons living with disabilities. CVC offers more than just housing; a consortium of on- and offsite service providers holistically attend to the needs of residents to foster positive outcomes such as housing stability, health and wellness, and economic self-sufficiency. The most recent development at CVC is Anchor Place, 120 units of permanent supportive housing for veteran and nonveteran individuals and families previously experiencing homelessness.
