UnitedHealthcare Provides $250,000 Grant To Help Fund Downtown Winter Housing Shelter For San Diego Homeless

UnitedHealthcare worked with Enterprise Community Investment, Inc., a national leader in the affordable-housing and community-development industry, to provide $15.1 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) equity to help finance and build Connections Housing Downtown, an integrated service and residential community project in San Diego. When completed early next year, Connections Housing will provide permanent year-round shelter, housing and an array of services for the region’s homeless.

The multi-use project will serve as a one-stop service center and housing for homeless people. The residential portion will consist of 73 studio units of permanent supportive housing, 16 special-needs single-occupancy units and 134 interim-housing beds. The project will also provide resources a person needs to break the cycle of homelessness. This includes a primary health care clinic, multiservice homeless center, large commercial kitchen, related dining facilities and administrative offices, among other amenities. Connections Housing Downtown is expected to replace the need for the downtown winter shelter in future years.

“The downtown winter shelter and Connections Housing will provide valuable temporary and permanent resources that will help San Diego-area homeless – about 1,600 of whom are military veterans – live healthier and more secure lives,” said Tony Lonigro, Southwest Region CEO, UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans. “UnitedHealthcare is grateful for the opportunity to work with the City of San Diego, Affirmed Housing Group and Enterprise Community Investment in making a difference in the community.”

UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) company, serves more than 2.3 million Californians with a care provider network of 323 hospitals and more than 47,400 physicians statewide.

The company also has been actively engaged in helping improve Californians’ access to quality health care. In addition to the investments in San Diego, the California Health Care Investment Program has provided $266 million in total investments to 45 health care organizations throughout the state that provide services to underserved, low-income and underinsured communities and populations. UnitedHealthcare has also provided an additional $22.3 million to help expand telemedicine in rural and medically underserved clinics and hospitals throughout the state.
