Earlier this month, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Century’s stewardship of the Villages at Cabrillo at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. More than 200 guests joined us representing our myriad stakeholders that have contributed to the creation of this special community over the years. A community premised on housing and serving some of our most vulnerable and marginalized community members.
Brian D’Andrea, Senior Vice President of Housing, said, “Century Villages at Cabrillo is a community catalyzed by Judge Pregerson and which continues to be inspired by his legacy. It is a community that has been enriched and fortified by an incredible collection of public and private agencies and has become a nationwide model thanks to the tireless work of our operations team including property management, resident services, and community engagement.”
During the program we awarded two special honorees: our longtime and recently retired Century board member Earl Fields along with Wells Fargo. These honorees have inspired us with their insight and generosity. And they call us to continued action and compassion in furtherance of our mission.
Director of Fund Development Christine Byrne said, “Last night’s event raised capital for our Oasis Residential Services team which provides transformative case management, enrichment and engagement services to our residents. We are reminded that this is challenging work which occurs one resident at a time.”
