First Community Housing has replaced an aging Single-Room Occupancy development (which had shared bathrooms), and build in its place 60 affordable SRO units with private bathrooms and increased on-site parking.
Casa Feliz is the recipient of a USGBC LEED NC Gold certification. Rob Quiqley Architects, FAIA, is the award-winning, nationally-recognized architectural firm, that designed this building.
Housing Choices Coalition (HCC) provides Resident Services Coordination to Casa Feliz residents with developmental disabilities, and facilitates communication between these residents and property management, providing one point of contact for the purposes of continuity and comprehensive communication. This includes a comprehensive marketing and screening process to ensure that appropriate services are in place before a client signs a lease. HCC works with these special needs residents to create a sense of community and to encourage a support network among their neighbors and friends.
