Johnson Court Groundbreaking - Housing Santa Barbara's Homeless Veterans


2nd Story Associates is a proud General Partner in the upcoming development of Johnson Court. The Johnson Court development broke ground on Monday, October 8th and will house 16 very low to low-income veterans in Santa Barbara.

The veteran target population is in keeping with the wishes of the former property owners, the Johnson family, whose father had served in the military. The Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara (HACSB) purchased the property and in keeping with the family’s wishes, will provide housing for veterans at the aptly named “Johnson Court”.

The need for affordable veteran housing is growing significantly nationwide. The Central Coast Collaborative Vulnerability Index database shows that there are 210 homeless veterans on our streets- with an average age of 52.9 years, and the oldest veteran reported to be 84 years old. The proposed housing will meet the needs of veterans with special needs, disabilities, who are seniors, and any combination of these realities veterans experience.
