COVID-19 Response

At Linc Housing, our residents are at the heart of our mission. Now more than ever, we're working to keep them safe, healthy, and housed.

Adapting Linc's Resident Services

We have reorganized our resident services staff to work remotely. The Staying Connected initiative offers supportive services via telephone while in-person programs are limited for safety. Residents can call their resident services coordinator or vice versa to check in on issues such as:
  • Level of family/caregiver support
  • Risk factors: chronic illnesses, low or no support, home-bound, limited mobility
  • Access to prescription medication and assistance with setting up delivery services
  • Access to food, water, and supplies
  • Health and wellness - assistance with scheduling appointments/transportation if not feeling well
  • Suicide prevention
  • Drug and alcoholism treatment
  • Emergency shelter for those experiencing domestic violence or other unsafe home situations
  • Discussing other topics as needed to support overall mental health and wellness
  • Accessing unemployment and other emergency relief benefits
Linc is working to continue the most vital programs, such as continuing and expanding food bank distributions that support both our residents and community members facing food insecurity during this crisis. We are also working to provide wellness and activity kits to residents and provide virtual programs to support social and educational needs.

Our resident services team has provided virtual programming that includes tutoring, census outreach, nutrition workshops, financial empowerment workshops, fitness activities, meditation, community meetings, and arts and crafts workshops. A snapshot of our work is as follows:

Food bank distributions
  • 9 communities served
  • 92 distributions facilitated
  • 2,072 residents served
  • 3,300 food boxes safely distributed to seniors
Supportive services
  • 347 residents served
  • 1,795 case notes submitted
Virtual programs
  • 17 communities served with 54 unique programs offered
  • 656 virtual tutoring sessions for youth

Adapting Linc's Management of Properties

Linc is working with property management to implement many new procedures as recommended by the CDC and other authorities. Examples of these new procedures include:
  • increasing cleaning and disinfecting of common surfaces such as gates and elevator buttons
  • closing all non-essential community spaces
  • encouraging the social distancing recommendations to our residents and staff
Our property management team is still providing essential services to our residents. We're also working with residents who are unable to pay their rent due to COVID-19. There will be no evictions due to non-payment of rent.

Questions or concerns related to our properties should be directed to our Asset Management team.

Adapting Linc's Office

To comply with the "Safer at Home" order and protect our employees, we have closed our physical office and transitioned to remote operations while continuing to provide essential support at affordable and supportive housing communities.

Adapting Linc's Projects in Construction

The State of California has declared construction, including the building of affordable housing, an essential business. Our general contractors are proceeding with precautionary measures in place. Examples include additional cleaning stations, use of masks and gloves, and limits of one trade per work area with two workers per trade. We appreciate the great work of our partners to prevent any delays in construction.
