Affordable Housing Development

Nonprofit affordable housing developer, building workforce communities in California

Working with city and county government and community partners to build low-income and workforce housing, Jamboree develops, constructs, or acquires and renovates, manages, and preserves affordable housing that strengthens communities throughout the Golden State – from Orange County and San Diego County to the Inland Empire in Riverside County and San Bernardino County, as well as in Los Angeles County, the greater Sacramento region, and beyond.

While our building types include a handful of mobile home communities, single resident occupancy (SRO or zero-bedroom units), and single-family homes, the vast majority of Jamboree's affordable housing development portfolio features multifamily apartment homes for low-income and mid-income families, seniors, veterans, those with special needs, and those formerly homeless with supportive services that transform lives and strengthen communities for lasting impact.

During the pre-development phase, Jamboree meets with stakeholders such as neighborhood groups, neighborhood councils, local business councils, city leaders and planners, and business leaders to do a community assessment. Together, Jamboree and its partners identify the types of affordable housing that would meet the greatest need for the most long-term and positive impact.

Housing development financial expertise
