Housing and Real Estate Portfolio
MCD, in collaboration with partners, has partnered in a combined investment of $103 million in South LA housing and real estate, including 318 units of affordable housing, plus community space for support services, youth programs, a homeless youth drop-in center, a community garden, and commercial space for our social enterprise. A few of our real estate partners include Little Tokyo Service Center, Clifford Beers Housing, and Thomas Safran & Associates.
MCD has a special focus on permanent supportive housing for youth and young adults, as well as individuals with special needs. In addition to an apartment, and a lease without a time limit, residents have access to MCD staff members on-site for support services. Permanent supportive housing is a best-practice championed by the Corporation for Supportive Housing. Click here to learn more about this best-practice.
We also offer affordable housing for families, seniors, and other low-income households at sites such as the Dunbar Village and others.
MCD has a team of Service Coordinators, with social work expertise, who provide on-site support services at our permanent supportive housing complexes. We also collaborate actively with community organizations such as All Peoples Community Center to bring in services for residents at our other buildings.
Two of MCD’s housing complexes are historic buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places:
- Historic Dunbar Hotel, built in 1928 by John and Vada Somerville (now co-owned by MCD and Thomas Safran & Associates, providing affordable housing to elders in the community)
- Historic 28th Street YMCA, designed in 1926 by architect Paul R. Williams (now co-owned by MCD and Clifford Beers Housing, providing affordable housing and youth services as the 28th Street Apartments and VCN YouthSource Center)
