The motel conversion model has been in existence for nearly 15 years and has proven effective in Los Angeles, an epicenter of homelessness in our country. The greatest affirmation of the model came with the 2020 project Homekey program put into operation by Governor Newsom in CA. Homekey is a state-funded program that provides funding to cities and counties for motel conversions to quickly and cost effectively provide urgently needed Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for individuals experiencing homelessness. In late 2020, Homekey was rolled out across the state and in that year along yielded over 6,000 new units of housing using the motel conversion model.
Three of our eight recent motel conversions are Homekey projects developed in partnership with Shangri-La Industries and are located in Monterey, San Bernardino, and Redlands counties.
Motel conversions offer many other benefits to the local community including:
