Permanent Supportive Housing Communities

For formerly homeless with a mental health diagnosis, illness

In the U.S., more than one-half million men, women and children are homeless. Many others are at risk of homelessness. California tops the list by state. For Jamboree, that’s not okay. Hence, our fierce commitment to build more permanent supportive housing statewide specifically designed for those currently homeless and those at risk of homelessness. 

As Orange County’s premier developer of permanent supportive housing, Jamboree creates quality affordable housing with permanent supportive services specially designed to accommodate and best serve those who are formerly homeless or living with mental illness. This customized design can include offices to house onsite staff, community spaces designed to facilitate private counseling or community building. It also includes fully furnished homes and floor plans that feature studio apartments near public transit that meet a City’s Single Resident Occupancy (SRO) requirements or two-bedroom apartments to promote family stability and long-term occupancy.

Housing First

The success of Jamboree’s housing first model – a national best practice – is based on a business strategy that calls for a special needs assessment of every housing project we undertake – from designated funding and architectural design at the outset to strategic and innovative partnerships with property management, full-service partners and community service organizations for the long-term. Whenever possible, we seek to grow our capacity to help those who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and/or who are living with a mental illness to thrive.

We’re proud that more than 120 of our residents are no longer homeless. Despite a mental health diagnosis, they are stable and live with hope. As the largest developer of permanent supportive housing in Orange County, Jamboree’s award-winning approach features several models of permanent supportive housing, including single-family shared homes as well as both dedicated and integrated multifamily properties.

In 2010, HOMES, Inc. – a leading nonprofit provider of housing and support for people with psychiatric disabilities – merged with Jamboree, creating opportunities for new funding sources and development opportunities. These properties further Jamboree’s goal to designate at least 10% of the homes at each of its new properties to people with special needs. Through a collaborative of Orange County nonprofits, read about how Jamboree help provided homes to 100 of the county’s most vulnerable.

Shared housing properties include:

  • Anaheim House: A converted six-bedroom home through collaboration with HomeAid Orange County in 1999
  • Cypress House: Located in Orange, opened in 2002 with funding through homeless outreach program
  • El Modena House: Four-bedroom home in Orange established in 1990 owned by county and leased by Jamboree
