supportive affordable housing
Operation Hope currently operates 46 units of scattered site affordable housing throughout Fairfield. These safe and clean units are home to men, women and families who were previously homeless. An application process helps determine who can live and thrive in our units. Rent is affordable and housing is permanent, so successful tenants can stay as long as they want. Tenants also receive individualized support services on- and off-site from social workers and daily living skills coaches. Ultimately, our goal is to help empower our tenants in attaining self-reliance and stability in their day-to-day lives, and prevent future homelessness. For many, the combination of affordability and support is critical to their success in becoming independent, responsible members of our community.
