San Diego has a housing crisis, and seniors are among the most affected.

The number of homeless seniors in San Diego has risen almost five percent since 2014. [PROJECT NAME] is being developed by a team of experienced nonprofits to address the growing need for senior housing, which is expected to increase as the Baby Boomer generation ages in the coming years.

The exact population for Mt. Alifan Apartments is still being determined. Below is a list of guidelines that we can count on:

  • Residents will likely include seniors, veterans, survivors of domestic violence, disabled individuals and individuals who experience a sudden and unexpected loss of income.

  • Residents must be U.S. Citizens or legal immigrants.

  • A thorough background check including criminal background screening will be conducted on all applicants. 

  • Residents must have become homeless in the City of San Diego. 

  • Our team will be advocating for a Clairemont prioritization; at minimum, our team will engage in an extensive, targeted outreach effort around the Clairemont area prior to opening to ensure that the homeless community are engaged and ready once the lease-up process begins.

Who is eligible to live at Mt. Alifan?

Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation (Wakeland Housing), People Assisting the Homeless (PATH), and St. Paul’s Senior Services are partnering to develop a new permanent supportive housing community for seniors with chronic health conditions who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.

Over 9,000 people live without a home in San Diego. Each of these individuals have a story unique to them.

While no two stories are the same, 77% of these people found themselves homeless due to one or more of these four factors:

  • Rise in Cost of Living

  • Physical or Mental Disability

  • Loss or Lack of a Job

  • Unaware of / Unable to Access Services

 

Supportive Housing combines affordable housing with comprehensive on-site resident services, equipping residents with the resources they need to rebuild their lives.

Because of the program's holistic approach to transitioning individuals to live healthy and productive lives, Supportive Housing has been proven to be the most effective way to end homelessness.
