City of San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Falcouner and the San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) launched an ambitious plan to create supportive housing opportunities for over 3,000 homeless individuals and families. Under the new plan, The Beacon Apartments, a major downtown development that meets Housing First principles address the city’s goal.  Acquired by nonprofit affordable housing developer Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation and managed by local construction management firm KCM Group, the new supportive housing community provides 44 homes for homeless individuals and families. The development will also replace a transitional living facility, expected to help alleviate San Diego’s growing need for longer-term supportive housing.
