About

Mosaic Gardens at Pomona is an example of Linc's work to create supportive housing opportunities for formerly homeless households in Los Angeles County. The property is located in an area which has been recognized by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority and CSH as disproportionately under-resourced.
In 2013, the City of Pomona conducted a count of the homeless population living in the city. They found roughly 630 homeless individuals living in the city, 65% of whom were originally Pomona residents. During the survey, these individuals were asked what they needed to move from temporary or inadequate shelter to housing. The answers varied between food, clothing, medical care and job training with the top answer being affordable housing.

Mosaic Gardens at Pomona is a 46-apartment affordable housing community with 23 units reserved for formerly homeless individuals and households. Other low-income families qualify to live there if they earn up to 60% of the area median income. Amenities include a community space where resident services programs and other events take place. Mosaic Gardens at Pomona provides a stable and supportive place that encourages growth and self-sufficiency by providing permanent homes and vibrant programs in the community spaces at the property. As our service provider partner, The People Concern supports the 23 formerly homeless households by providing intensive case management services.

An onsite Linc Housing resident services coordinator facilitates programs for all 46 households, including educational workshops, after-school tutoring, exercise, financial literacy, computer classes, and social events.
The new complex has a number of sustainability features including 35 kW of solar photovoltaic to offset common and resident use, high-efficiency mechanical systems, and a foam roof for added insulation. The building also has high-performance windows and building envelope, and both the HVAC and water heating systems are very high efficiency. Other environmental features include low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, drought tolerant landscape, on-site recapture of rainwater, permeable paving surfaces, and healthy building materials throughout. Mosaic Gardens at Pomona has received LEED for Homes Platinum certification from the the U.S. Green Building Council.
