1. What is your mission?
The development of service-enriched, affordable housing for veterans and other special needs groups.
2. What supportive services are provided at Cloudbreak Communities’s housing developments?
Cloudbreak Communities is a family of mission-driven, limited liability companies owned and operated by Cantwell-Anderson and engaged solely in the development of special needs housing with support services. We are fiercely loyal to the notion of “collaborate in everything, be redundant in nothing” and thus we focus on our expertise of real estate development and property management and partner closely with other organizations who are experts in providing support services. Current on-site service partnerships include the VA and U.S. VETS in all localities, as well as Goodwill, Community Bridges, Inglewood Adult School, The Salvation Army, PATH and many other community and faith-based groups in each specific locality. These partner agencies collectively offer Case Management, health care, life skills development, recreational programs, crisis intervention, employment services, substance abuse counseling and other support services on-site in most cases.
3. Why are you working to end chronic and Veteran homelessness?
Cloudbreak Communities and Cantwell-Anderson have been engaged in the mission of ending homelessness among veterans through a coordinated continuum of care including transitional and permanent supportive housing since 1993 when it first opened Westside Residence Hall, a 500 bed, 8 story dormitory for homeless veterans consisting of 160 transitional housing beds and a capacity of 340 permanent housing beds. Concern for ending chronic homelessness among veterans is a natural fit for our communities.
