Cantwell-Anderson, Inc.
Introduction

 

OVERVIEW

Cloudbreak Communities is the brand name for the family of mission-driven Limited Liability Companies engaged in the development and operation of service-enriched affordable housing for veterans and other special needs groups. Owned and operated by Cantwell-Anderson, Inc., a California Corporation, the various Cloudbreak companies which make up Cloudbreak Communities, have completed the development of nearly 2,800 beds/units in 9 communities across 5 states and partnered numerous public, private and non-profit entities in the operation of supportive services and healthcare within each site.

Depicted above is our inaugural site, Westside Residence Hall in Inglewood California. Westside Residence Hall was first developed in 1993 and was converted from an 8 story student housing dormitory to a 315 unit design supporting up to 500 beds for the reintegration of homeless and formerly homeless veterans.

Inside Westside Residence Hall, United States Veterans Initaitive (U.S. VETS), a California Not-For-Profit Corporation, directly leases 65 units serving the residential employment and other needs of approximately 160 homeless veterans. The remaining 340 units are direct tenant leases of affordable housing to formerly homeless veterans, often graduates of U.S. VETS' programs, and low-income veterans at risk of homelessness. Supportive Services are directly offered to each veteran resident through an on-site VA Community Based Outreach Clinic on the 1st floor as well as from U.S. VETS through Supportive Services Agreements between each party. In November of 2011, we completed development and placed in service a 196 unit addition of affordable housing for veterans bringing the total capacity to 696 veterans served.

The philosophy behind Cloudbreak Communities is designed to collectively support a completed Continuum of Care within each geographical location. We spend our time assembling the best local teams to assemble, acquire, construct and renovate housing while collaborating with public, private and non-profit organizations to create a seamless system of support for our Veteran residents from a state of homelessness to independence.
