Housing for Homeless Veterans Opens in Los Angeles

PHBTL130927_240Co-developed by New Directions and A Community of Friends, participants of CSH’s Opening New Doors Institute, New Directions Sepulveda I and II provides 147 supportive housing opportunities for veterans with histories of homelessness and chronic homelessness in Los Angeles. Two formerly vacant buildings on the Veterans Affairs (VA) Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center (VASACC) were transformed into LEED Silver certified buildings that were recently named a “Reader’s Choice Award” in the special-needs category of Affordable Housing Finance Magazine’s 2013 annual competition for the Nation’s Best Affordable Housing Developments. CSH provided one-on-one technical assistance in addition to $1.65 million in predevelopment financing to help make this project a reality.
