Housing in Anaheim, CA for Formerly Homeless

Successfully housing formerly homeless in Orange County

Opened in 2009, Diamond Apartment Homes is an award-winning, pioneering multifamily development in Anaheim, CA that provides both permanent housing and mental health supportive services for previously homeless individuals and families. In line with the Housing First national best practice and rapid re-housing, all residents are previously classified as homeless and diagnosed with chronic mental illness. For these residents, permanent housing is critical to providing stability and ongoing mental health services. 

Diamond also takes a unique approach that allows families to reunite and remain together in Anaheim. The one and two-bedroom apartments promote a focus on families to promote long-term occupancy. Integral to the success of Diamond Is the inclusion of fully funded, ongoing supportive services that are provided by Jamboree’s Community Impact Group, along with services provided by Orange County Healthcare Agency's Full-Service Provider. This enhanced level of support to residents is an award-winning example of effective partnerships that are making a marked impact for these residents and their families.

Combining the creative use of land, sustainable building practices and strategic partnerships under one roof, Diamond continues to boast a 50% original resident retention rate.

That level of success is unheard of in the mental health community, far exceeding measures of success in residential stability, increased skills or income and greater self-determination as set by the Governor’s Homeless Initiative – one of multiple layers of both public and private funding sources for the property – to create 10,000 additional units of permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals with chronic mental illness that’s aimed at ending homelessness in California.

Diamond was constructed on an irregularly shaped remnant parcel of less than one acre from a freeway expansion project, adjacent to an Interestate 5 (I-5) freeway on/off ramp. The property varies in width from 120 feet to 30 feet, is bounded by streets on three sides, and included a storm drain easement that bisected the site. A unique collaboration between architect and Jamboree, with community input from Anaheim residents, was influential in many design decisions, such as the outward-facing design, and the selection of low garden walls to intentionally create a sense of openness.

Diamond was the first step in the City of Anaheim’s investment in developing a mixed-use neighborhood, and its craftsman-inspired design is in keeping with the character of the local historical style. The innovative financing that made the project a reality included a nexus of funding.

Jamboree continues to partner with the city of Anaheim, County of Orange, investors, mental health service providers, and property management to ensure that Diamond provides high quality housing and extensive supportive services to residents for years to come, filling the need for affordable housing with services for those with special needs.
