A Success Story

September 2019 marked the dedication of Loma Linda Veterans Village, the county’s first affordable housing community for homeless and low-income veterans and their families. The 87-unit development located near the Loma Linda VA Hospital, is the latest chapter in the countywide effort to house all homeless veterans. The campaign began in 2015, when there were 401 homeless veterans in the county. In 2018, the 1,000th veteran was housed under the initiative. Loma Linda Veterans Village received the Southern California Association of Nonprofits 2019 Homes Within Reach award for excellence in affordable permanent supportive housing. The project is a partnership between the County of San Bernardino, Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino, City of Loma Linda, Meta Housing, and Housing Partners I.
