Meta Housing doesn’t just build communities, they also implement programs to help rehabilitate and significantly impact the day-to-day lives of residents.
“From central, open community rooms to full-fledged professional theatres, we consistently create fresh, inviting spaces that bring our residents together to engage with one another, and with their local community,” explains Kasey Burke, President at Meta Housing. “In addition, we also provide life-improving programs and services free of charge to all residents.”
Examples of programs and services Meta Housing provides include:
- Tutoring & Computer Classes
- After-School Programs
- Financial Literacy Classes
- English & Writing Classes
- Continuing Education
- Career Training & Job Placement Services
- Community Mentorship
- Processional Art, Music & Theatre Classes
In early 2022, Meta Housing completed Main Street Plaza Apartments and Annex on Main, a 65-unit affordable multifamily community in Roseville, California. The community is positioned to serve low-income families, veterans, and individuals with special needs. The project is also in partnership with LifeSTEPS, whose role as the on-site resident service coordinator will provide life-improving services to all residents.
Within the community, the veteran population will receive specialized service coordination, education, case management, health services, transportation, counseling, and advocacy on-site and through the VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System. MHSA residents will receive intensive special needs case management services from Placer County.
“This range of targeted services will make a true difference in the lives of residents by providing them with access to resources that are incredibly necessary, but often limited for people in difficult circumstances,” says Burke. “Supportive services have been proven to be extremely beneficial in helping residents elevate their quality of life and achieve their career and personal goals, creating the stability needed on an individual level to solve the greater homelessness crisis.”
