Retirement Housing Foundation Breaks Ground on New Affordable Senior Housing Community in Chula Vista, Calif.

Groundbreaking ceremony for Congregational Place affordable housing community.

Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF), based in Long Beach, Calif., held a groundbreaking celebration May 10 for Congregational Place, a 56-unit, affordable senior housing community in Chula Vista, Calif.

Guest speakers included Chula Vista Mayor John McCann and representatives from the California State Assembly and Chula Vista City Council.

The new affordable community construction project is the result of a unique partnership between RHF and the Community Congregational Development Corporation (CCDC). The finished building will include 2,083 square feet of commercial space on the first floor that will be leased to San Ysidro Health and will be used to operate a PACE program of income and age-eligible seniors in California’s South Bay area.

What makes this affordable community unique is that 2,083 square feet of commercial space on the first floor will be leased to San Ysidro Health; their plan is to operate a PACE program for income and age-eligible seniors in the L.A. South Bay area. 

“This groundbreaking is the result of a significant, multi-year collaboration; government, public companies and nonprofit organizations have come together to make something happen that everyone agrees is a critical need in this community,” said Stuart Hartman, president & CEO of RHF. 

Ruth Jones, president of CCDC, concurred. “As a nonprofit whose mission is to serve fixed income seniors in the South Bay, CCDC is thrilled to partner with RHF in our second affordable senior housing residence in Chula Vista,” she said. “We are particularly pleased that San Ysidro Health will occupy the first floor commercial space, where it will operate a PACE program, providing healthcare for fixed income seniors at Congregational Place, but also for qualifying seniors throughout the surrounding South Bay area.”
