Los Angeles has approved more new affordable and supportive housing in the past five years than in the previous 30 years, leading to progress in housing for working families, seniors on fixed incomes and those who have experienced homelessness. Measure HHH, approved by voters in the City of Los Angeles, is one of the main reasons for this accelerated pace, while Measure H, approved by voters in Los Angeles County, provides the necessary funding for services ongoing support and operating costs.
On June 30, Linc Housing will join Representative Maxine Waters, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles County officials, new residents and many other partners to celebrate the completion of one of these new supportive housing communities. Cadence, a brand new 64-unit apartment building in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, provides comprehensive housing and support services for families and homeless individuals.
Cadence offers 63 one-bedroom apartments and a management unit. Other features include a community room with kitchen, computer room, outdoor courtyards, indoor bicycle parking, offices for case management, and convenient access to public transportation, shopping, and community services.
With financial support from Housing for Health/Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, residents receive intensive case management to help them thrive. Support services include mental health and physical health services, employment counseling and job placement, education, addictions counselling, money management, help obtaining and maintain benefits and referrals to community services and resources.
Over 80% of residents have moved in and they are already well on their way to building a supportive community.
Funding for the development came from a variety of sources, including construction and permanent loans from Bank of America, $10.1 million from HHH funds managed by the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD), $7.1 million from the Los Angeles County Development Authority (No Place Like Home fund) and the Raymond James Equity Tax Credit. The City of Los Angeles Housing Authority provides housing allowance. All units were filled through referrals from the Los Angeles County Coordinated Entry System (CES).
