We are excited to announce the groundbreaking of Vanowen Apartments, a 48-unit permanent supportive housing community in North Hollywood. In partnership with Daylight Community Development and Decro Corporation, the project utilizes modular construction and a simpler capital stack to bring supportive housing online faster and cheaper than traditional development models. “The People Concern is thrilled to be a part of this project as the Case Management services provider for Vanowen Apartments,” says Melissa Vollbrecht, LCSW, Senior Director, Project-Based Housing for The People Concern.
The People Concern is proud to provide residents at Vanowen with comprehensive wraparound services to ensure that their transition from homelessness to permanent housing is successful. “Without supportive communities like these, we wouldn’t be able to complete the work of solving homelessness. It’s one thing to move people off the streets, but off the streets isn’t good enough. We want people to be on their way to success –innovative solutions to homelessness are what we are celebrating with this groundbreaking,” says Mayor Garcetti. We couldn’t agree more and can’t wait to welcome home our new neighbors!
