Using Homekey funding from the State of California’s Housing and Community Development Department (HCD), support from the City of Petaluma, project-based vouchers from the County of Sonoma, and financial investments into the community from Providence Health and Wells Fargo, Burbank Housing and partners celebrated the acquisition of the Studios at Montero in Petaluma.
With our partners at Petaluma-based Committee on the Shelterless (COTS) bringing their nearly 35 years of experience in aiding those experiencing homelessness to bear as the on-site service provider, the former America’s Best Value Inn site in northeast Petaluma will soon enter the rehab construction phase of the project, transforming the motel rooms into 60 studio apartments of permanent supportive housing for homeless residents in Sonoma County. Burbank Housing is excited to bring another Homekey project online as we continue to seek out partnerships with those that are committed to investing in the long-term health and growth of Sonoma County!
With the purchase of the property now complete, Valley Lodge Apartments (formerly Wine Valley Lodge) will soon enter the rehab construction phase of this project, transforming the motel rooms into 54 studio apartments of permanent supportive housing for homeless residents in Napa, including 14 units set aside for homeless youth.
This opportunity to bring much needed relief to those in Napa experiencing homelessness would not have been possible without the tireless support of Burbank Housing’s partners at the City and County of Napa, the experience and dedication of on-site service providers Abode Services and VOICES, and financial commitments from Providence Queen of the Valley & Wells Fargo. Homekey projects are by design collaborative efforts, recognizing that we need a comprehensive strategy to provide those experiencing homelessness in our communities the best opportunity for success. Burbank Housing is proud to be taking this challenge head-on!
Like much of the Bay Area, the cost of living in the North Bay remains unaffordable for many residents. Issues such as wildfires, floods and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic, have presented additional and unique hurdles for our community to overcome. Through it all, affordable housing remains the most important unmet need for thousands of North Bay residents. Over the past four decades, Burbank Housing has helped tackle the North Bay’s unmet affordable housing needs — and we’re not slowing down..
