What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

California is home to 28% of the nation's homeless population and that number continues to rise. in 2020 alone, nearly 83,000 people became homeless in Los Angeles County. In Ventura County, more than 1,700 people live without shelter each night. Many Mansions is tackling the housing crisis in Southern California that keeps so many people and families stuck in unstable, high rent housing or on the streets. Once housed, Many Mansions also provides a variety of life-enriching services to put tools and skills in the hands of our residents so that they can maintain their housing, increase their incomes, and thrive independently.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Supportive & Adult Services

As part of the solution to alleviate homelessness in Southern California, we build more than just housing. Many Mansions also offers free, on-site programs and services that create opportunities for residents to thrive. Our approach meets each person exactly where they are, providing a range of tools to address mental and physical challenges, build self-sufficiency, and meet personal life goals.

Programs and services for adults include job development training, life skills workshops, health care referrals, individualized case management, and food assistance. By providing quality, well-managed housing and life-enriching services to those most in need, Many Mansions helps individuals and families overcome housing insecurity.

Homeless people

Conducted on-site at five of Many Mansions’ properties, the Children’s Services program engages resident youth ages 5 to 18 who come from backgrounds of homelessness and poverty. By providing resources not easily available to low income and marginalized youth, we seek to ensure the academic and life success of every child who comes through our programs.

Children's Services reaches approximately 100 youth per year, amounting to more than 50,000 hours of continuous learning and engagement annually. Ongoing services include after-school tutoring, volunteer opportunities, an enrichment and STEM Friday program, a college and career preparation club, and a seven-week summer camp. The program also offers access to hundreds of books, school supplies (including a backpack filled with grade-appropriate supplies every August), and community-donated gifts during the holiday season. All programs are free of charge to Many Mansions residents.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Many Mansions is a nonprofit affordable housing and service provider. Our mission is to develop and provide quality affordable housing and life-enriching services for low income individuals and families in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, with special focus on those of very low income, who are formerly homeless, seniors, veterans, or disabled.

Many Mansions currently provides over 600 units of affordable housing to low-income families in Ventura County. Besides housing, Many Mansions provides on-site supportive services for families including case management, life skills, and programs for children including homework tutoring and summer camp. By providing quality, well-managed housing and life-enriching services to those most in need, we aim to break the cycle of poverty and remove the barriers that prevent members of our community from achieving housing stability and the ability to improve their lives.

To meet the need in the community, Many Mansions is expanding its development and services. We are building new apartment communities in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, and we are expected to double the number of units we manage and the number of people we serve within 3-4 years. At the end of this development period, we will be housing and serving over 2,600 residents.

Many Mansions is dedicated to serving our mission and providing affordable housing and life-enriching services to those most in need in our community. The following goals describe our strategy:

- OPTIMIZE…existing properties and life enriching services;
- INCREASE…the availability of low income housing opportunities;
- ENSURE…long term financial sustainability;
- ENGAGE….community stakeholders and strategic partners;
- INVEST…in staff, technology, board development, other resources; and
- BRAND…Many Mansions as a unique corporate citizen dedicated to providing affordable housing and life enriching services

Many Mansions develops affordable housing through new construction and acquisition/rehabilitation of existing apartment complexes—often old, rundown, and overcrowded. Once developed, Many Mansions manages and owns the complex, and provides a variety of life-enriching services for its adults and youth. The many services offered to residents are geared toward the population that it will be serving. With this flexible service plan Many Mansions' residents are able to have access and use services that will be most valuable to them in their personal journey of ending the cycle of poverty.

Housing is a vital part of Many Mansions' goals. For over 40 years, Many Mansions has provided hope and homes to people in need in Ventura County. Once engaged in rental assistance, Many Mansions now owns and operates over 600 units of affordable housing in Ventura County. Our organization has a real estate license (BRE # 02003927) and our highly skilled and accomplished housing development team is constantly pursuing and engaging in projects that will bring more affordable housing units to residents in need.

While housing is important, Many Mansions has also emphasized service programs that allow residents to improve their lives. Our programs are all free for residents and offered on-site, which is both unique and effective. On-site case managers and service coordinators provide residents with exceptional service programs that are highly accessible and personal - especially important for a population that may not have its own transportation in communities with little public transportation. By building trusting and caring relationships with dedicated staff, Many Mansions programs encourage healthy relationships that help give residents the strength and stability needed to deal with life's challenges and uncertainties.

Furthermore, Many Mansions is an organization embedded in our community. Nearly 200 volunteers support Many Mansions each year with tasks ranging from after school tutoring to fundraising to front desk administration. An additional 75 paid staff help support the mission through services, property management, housing development, resource development, asset management, and administration. Our Board of Directors are all volunteers and deeply involved in our strategy and goals, and our organization enjoys the support of many local organizations.

Many Mansions is dedicated to providing affordable housing for low-income families of all sizes. The need for affordable housing is great for households that are very low and extremely low income, but extremely great for those of a special population -- seniors, veterans, transition aged youth, homeless, or disabled households. Many Mansions provides supportive housing for the most vulnerable members of our community – those who are extremely low-income and formerly homeless, often with a mental or physical disability.

We currently have over 1,300 residents at Many Mansions, including adults and children. However, as of April 2019, we also have over 4,000 households on our waiting list. The need for affordable housing is increasing. That is why we are working diligently on new development projects in our area, including potential sites in Camarillo, Moorpark, Fillmore, Sylmar, Boyle Heights and more for low-income families and special populations like veterans, seniors, and homeless. This is a slow process but an exciting one, and we welcome collaboration and partnerships of all kinds.

Recently, we completed a 24-unit project in Moorpark in partnership with the Area Housing Authority of the County of Ventura. This project is for low-income families. We also recently completed a 40-unit project in Oxnard in partnership with LA Family Housing. This project is serving homeless and low-income veterans and their families. We have made significant progress on a number of other properties in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. Stay tuned for more details.
