The Development team working on our Roosevelt Apartments project in San Jose recently closed its construction loan and plans to break ground this summer! First Community Housing will build 80 units of multifamily housing with a mix of studios, 1-BR, 2-BR, and 3-BR units. Twenty (20) of the units will be set aside as permanent supportive housing and 20 units will be designated as rapid rehousing units. The remaining units will be offered to individuals and families earning up to 50% of area median income.

The target population will be young adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, homeless families, large families (5+). If possible, we would also like to serve foster families and/or survivors of domestic abuse in our development. Following the Bill Wilson Center’s model, our goal is to have income qualified teachers, social service workers, and foster families living at Roosevelt Park Apartments who can serve as mentors for the young adults. Watch this space for a ground breaking ceremony later this year, and check out the news stories on this project below.
