Covering 26 acres, this Base Closure development is the largest residential program in the country for homeless veterans, families and youth, with 1000 beds of transitional housing, permanent housing and social services. The project was secured, envisioned, financed and developed by Cantwell-Anderson, Inc., and collaborative efforts of over 14 public, private and non-profit organizations packaged critical services. The development was completed in 2010 and ownership was transferred to Century Housing, a California non-profit, to continue operations.
