In honor of Veteran’s Day last month, Meta Housing is proud to recognize Main Street Plaza Apartments, a 65-unit, permanent supportive housing mixed-use property in Roseville, California. The community, which offers a mix of two- and three-bedroom apartments, provides housing for low-income families, veterans, and individuals with special needs, including homeless veterans.
“Meta Housing strives to provide housing for some of the most deserving and often vulnerable populations among us, including veterans,” says Kasey Burke, President of Meta Housing. “By working with our development and financing partners to complete communities like Main Street Plaza Apartments, we are helping those who have sacrificed so much for our safety and security and deserve the dignity of attractive and affordable homes for themselves and their families.”
Main Street Plaza Apartments, one of several Meta Housing communities that serve veterans, features 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, as well as a public pedestrian paseo. Additional amenities include an outdoor courtyard with BBQ areas, a children’s play area, and a fitness center, among others.
The site for the apartment community is located in close proximity to neighboring amenities such as mass transit, a park, local grocery and retail stores, and a library, all of which are located within a mile of the property.
Beyond physical amenities, Meta Housing partnered with LifeSTEPS, a nonprofit organization that serves as the service coordinator for the community, providing life-improving social services to residents, notes Burke.
“Meta Housing is proud to partner with LifeSTEPS as well as the VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System to provide veteran residents with specialized social services including coordination, education, case management, health, transportation, counseling, and advocacy on-site at the community,” says Burke. “Our partners work with us to deliver not only the physical amenities at our properties, but also much-needed social programming that elevates the lives of residents in measurable ways.”
In developing Main Street Plaza Apartments, Meta Housing also partnered with the following public and private entities: California Debt Limit Allocation Committee, California Housing Finance Agency, California Department of Housing and Community Development, California Public Finance Authority, California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, California Department of Veterans Affairs, City of Roseville, County of Placer, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, Pacific Western Bank, Placer Campaign for Community Wellness, Red Stone Equity Partners, Roseville Housing Authority, The Home Depot Foundation, and Western Community Housing, Inc.
