Jamboree Awarded Grant for Special Needs Services
- Mar 09, 2011
Irvine, Calif.–Jamboree Housing Corporation received a $15,000 grant from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) as part of CSH’s Assuring Quality Initiative (AQUI) to assess and enhance the affordable housing developer’s program to assist residents living with permanent mental illness and to help end homelessness.
CSH, whose primary mission is to end homelessness, is providing the grant to Jamboree and several other leading supportive housing organizations throughout the United States in order to produce improved programming performance models that could generate information that will be shared among supportive housing organizations to enhance the perception and practice of supportive housing nationally.
One of California’s largest nonprofit developers of affordable housing and a provider of supportive housing, Jamboree is using the grant to create a comprehensive quality-improvement plan focused on the company’s current and future portfolio of supportive housing units that it has committed to develop as part of its new affordable housing properties.
To expand the company’s supportive housing capabilities and expertise, last fall Jamboree acquired HOMES, Inc., a nonprofit provider of housing and support for people with psychiatric disabilities. As part of Jamboree’s Resident Services Group, this new nonprofit partnership is dedicated to the same expanded mission: to create more quality supportive housing for those with special needs.
