About El Monte Veterans Village

  • Property Type: Supportive
  • Units: 41

El Monte Veterans Village is a landmark achievement between Mercy Housing California and New Directions in an effort to create affordable, service-enriched, supportive living for homeless Veterans in the Los Angeles area. The new three-story development in the City of El Monte will mean 40 studio apartments and 2,400 square feet of common and recreational space for service delivery targeting homeless Veterans.

As the first permanent supportive community for homeless Veterans in the area, El Monte Veterans Village addresses the growing rate of homelessness in a community that struggles with uniquely high rates of unemployment and special needs by:

  • Partnering with New Directions, a well-established nonprofit with 20 years of experience serving homeless veterans, who will provide on-site services in partnership with the VA and 10 local agencies. Services will include case management, health & wellness programs, benefits claims assistance & legal services, substance abuse recovery support and social & recreational activities;
  • Developing affordable living opportunities near downtown areas, employment opportunities, parks, services, businesses, transit and the local Veterans of Foreign Wars facility;
  • Collaborating with service providers, community partners, and the Department of Veterans Affairs to inform the design of the energy-efficient building, programming space, and Resident Services.

  • A Veteran with a Discharge Status of Honorable or Other-than-Honorable and eligible to receive VA Health Benefits
