Yesterday, Century, the City of Long Beach, and dozens of partners and supporting agencies celebrated the grand opening of Anchor Place, a 120-unit affordable housing development for families and veterans experiencing homelessness.
Located within the Century Villlages at Cabrillo campus owned and operated by Century, the five-story development includes 75 units reserved for veterans experiencing homelessness and 45 units set aside for extremely low-income residents. Anchor Place consists of a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, extensive open space, and courtyard recreational areas.
“Providing affordable, safe, and secure housing for a veterans and families is a key to addressing the City’s housing needs,” said Councilmember Roberto Uranga. “This development will support the tremendous efforts at the Century Villages at Cabrillo, and further promote vibrant and diverse communities.”
Residents have access to comprehensive on-site supportive services including case management, physical and mental health services, employment services, life skills training, and counseling.
“Century is very proud of Anchor Place and what has been created in the larger Villages at Cabrillo community,” said Ronald M. Griffith, President & CEO of Century Housing. “We are grateful for the investment and contributions of our many partners that have created this special community where lives are being transformed.”
