By partnering with its residents, medical centers, and local community groups, Linc Housing activated the City's vision to create vibrant public spaces for Long Beach residents. Linc added an engaging outdoor public park and retail spaces to create a mixed-use neighborhood that connects housing with community-serving assets.
Our key partners on the ground floor help serve the community and provide opportunity. Both Spark and neighborhood residents have access to healthcare through the Dignity Health St. Mary Medical Center clinic within the building. This expands available options for family and internal medicine, including preventative care and management of chronic conditions. We've also created a new home for the YMCA of Greater Long Beach's programs, including the Youth Institute. For more than a decade, this year-round program has used technology to promote positive youth development and create pathways to post-secondary education and career readiness of low-income, culturally diverse urban high school youth.
