2017 Family Housing DOD Winner Rockwood Apartments

Rockwood Apartments in Anaheim, Calif., is home to one of the city’s most vulnerable populations. Forty-eight of the 70 apartments are set aside for unstably housed residents with children in the local school district and 15 are set aside for special needs households living with mental illness, with the balance reserved for large families. The property, developed by Innovative Housing Opportunities and Jamboree Housing Corporation, has quality architecture, outstanding interior design, landscaping and amenities. It also features a range of social services for all ages. LIHTCs played a key role in making the property possible.

“This project is focused on a critical nexus for low-income families–linking stable housing with success in school for the children in the family,” said Mary Tingerthal, Development of Distinctions judge. “This appears to be a truly collaborative project bringing together service providers with providers of affordable housing and linking to schools.”
