SAN DIEGO, CA – San Diego County celebrated the opening of a new affordable housing complex in the Carlsbad area, which aims to help people who are veterans, low-income or suffer from mental illness.
Located at Harding Street and Oak Avenue, Windsor Pointe offers 50 affordable housing units ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments. The units are intended for veterans and their families earning between 25 and 60% of area median income (AMI) and unsheltered individuals with serious mental illness.
According to the county, supportive services will be available on-site to help people experiencing mental challenges and crises.
The project is the result of collaboration between the county, the city of Carlsbad, Affirmed Housing Group and other community organizations. The development will remain affordable in the Carlsbad community for 55 years.
The County of San Diego is supporting more than a dozen projects currently under construction throughout the region. Combined, the developments will add more than 950 units of affordable housing to the community.
The Windsor Pointe development is in line with the County’s Framework to End Homelessness, which was approved by the Board last year.
As part of the framework, the county has committed to invest more than $53 million to create supportive housing for people with serious mental illness who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
