Mary Jo Goelzer Goelzer: “Without additional capital to either redevelop or create more housing, in a highly impacted housing market like Orange County, veterans with specialized housing needs will almost certainly go largely unmet.”

SANTA ANA, CA—More attention is being paid to veterans’ housing needs, but Orange County needs to identify significant additional resources directed specifically at creating more housing for this population, Jamboree Housing Corp.’s VP marketing and communications Mary Jo Goelzer tells GlobeSt.com. A significant step towards housing Orange County’s homeless veterans was recently made by the City of Santa Ana when the City Council approved awarding Jamboree and mental-health service provider Step Up on Second Inc. with 75 Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing project-based vouchers to help finance the development of supportive-housing units for homeless veterans who will also receive employment, healthcare and other special services.
