Overview


Mission Statement

American Family Housing provides a continuum of housing and an array of services to support homeless and low income families, adults and American veterans to secure a stable home, to be an active part of their community, and to achieve a self-sustaining way of life.


Background Statement

Established in 1985, AFH has been a beacon of hope in the Southern California community for over 30 years. What began as one single-family home in Santa Ana and a food distribution project in Westminster, AFH today operates 63 housing sites with 277 unit’s in three major counties: Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino. Each year AFH houses approximately 1,300 adults and children who would otherwise be homeless or at risk of homelessness while AFH’s services help vulnerable populations recover from the long-term effects of homelessness and/or poverty.

 

AFH assists men, women and children with barriers to housing stability such as veterans, formerly homelessness and those with chronic health conditions, mental illness and substance abuse histories. Housing and services address the housing needs of at risk populations to ensure improved health outcomes, less use of emergency resources, and recovery from the long term effects of poverty.


Impact Statement

For 34 years, American Family Housing has assured housing placement and retention for homeless individuals and families as well as those at risk of homelessness. 

Starting with one single-family home and a food distribution project in Orange County, AFH today maintains nearly 300 units in 62 buildings, 84% of which are owned as well as operated by our organization across Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino Counties. Those units translate into 1,100 people served each year. Whether a vulnerable family needs just affordable housing or permanent supportive housing (housing with on-site intensive services), we have the right housing solution for them at a time when such solutions are in short supply in Southern California. 

American Family Housing solutions are not just timely; they are innovative. We made headlines in 2017 when we opened Potters Lane, which is home today to formerly chronically homeless American veterans. Adjacent to our headquarters, Potters Lane was groundbreaking, figuratively and literally.  We were the first non-profit in the United States to transform recycled shipping containers, delivered and assembled on site, into permanent supportive housing. Their design is cost-effective, energy-efficient, and assures rapid assembly. We are eager to replicate this model to alleviate local housing shortages. 

We serve the most vulnerable people in our communities. Veterans are one priority population for AHF, representing 25% of our clients; another is families with members who have physical/developmental/ behavioral disabilities, which account for another 40%.  Seventy-five percent of our homes are headed by women. With a culturally competent team in place, we serve tenants from underrepresented ethnic populations, as follows:

African American 11%

Hispanic/Latino 37%
Caucasian 43%
Other 9%

Service Locations

We maintain affordable housing and permanent supportive housing properties in Orange County (Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Lake Forest, Midway City, Santa Ana, and Westminster), San Bernardino County (Fontana), and Los Angeles County (Long Beach and South Gate). 


Needs Statement

With the agency receiving only 20% of its revenue from government sources, the agency relies on private sources and income generated from owned properties to cover operating expenses. The dedication of resources to support homeless families in recovery is costly, requiring AFH to seek outside sources for support.

Additionally, AFH‘s Board and management team have identified the following programmatic, governance and infrastructural needs for the current period;

  • Increase diversity of revenue streams and fundraising support by a minimum of 20 new sources.

  • Recruit and train a minimum of 100 new volunteers committed to the organization’s work.

  • Bring new members on the Board of Directors as a strategy to benefit from expertise and perspectives, and to create a long term vision for the agency.

  • Expand facilities to add new office space for community programs, group and individual counseling with clients, and create a children’s play area

  • Expand pool of vehicles for transportation of clients and donations

 

CEO Statement

American Family Housing stands at the forefront of finding innovative solutions to the issues of homelessness in our community. One such solution is modular housing such as Potter’s Lane, which employs single-use, recycled shipping containers to create 480-square-foot studio apartments for chronically homeless American veterans – and their animals. Potter’s Lane is the only charity in the western United States to allow homeless individuals to be sheltered with their animals. The opening of Potter’s Lane was featured throughout the county on television and in newspapers, but much more work needs to be done for all of the homeless in our communities and we are dedicated to that purpose.

Programs


Permanent Housing Collaborative

The Permanent Housing Collaborative program provides 13 units of permanent housing and supportive services for chronically homeless individuals including disabled veterans, chronic substance abusers, and victims of domestic violence. Of the participants, 20-100% will qualify as chronically homeless with a disability.  Supportive services include collaborative case management, mental health and substance abuse services, medical services, transportation assistance and legal services.
Budget  $533,213.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Case Management
Population Served Homeless Adults Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success 
Short term success of our permanent housing programs is found in the housing stability of the households we serve. Each year our programs will provide stable permanent housing and services to maintain that housing for those at risk. Continued case management, after school program and community events all invest in housing stability for the resident of our facilities. 
Program Long-Term Success 
 This program gives homeless families living with a disability a safe, permanent home. An array of supportive services best suited for their long term stability is provided to all families in the program to ensure long term housing success. Measureable outcomes of no evictions, on-time rent payments, access to county benefits and help with increasing their income.


Program Success Monitored By 
American Family Housing case managers utilize the counties HMIS (Homeless Management Information System) program.  This program allows case managers to track and monitor program milestones and objectives.
Examples of Program Success 

Geri-Came entered our emergency shelter and quickly moved into transitional housing. Geri got a part-time job but was hit by a car on her way to work. Geri was down for 3 months. Geri recently moved into permanent housing program and is back to work full time with money in her savings account and a plan to continue saving for the future.


Potter's Lane

Potter's Lane is a 16-unit, permanent supportive housing project built to house chronically homeless veterans. Dedicated in February 2017, Potter's Lane is a pilot project and the 1st in the nation to utilize recycled, single-use shipping containers to provide affordable, permanent housing. It can be rapidly duplicated to address the growing homeless and affordable-housing problems in any community. Importantly, it was built in 6 months, avoiding the long development cycles associated with conventional site-built construction and financing -- and providing an immediate housing answer amid an urgent community crisis Potter's Lane has been featured on the front page of the OC Business Journal, LA Times, OC Register and on the CBS Evening News. Built on the Housing First Model, Potter's Lane provides ongoing support for residents as they transition into housing, including case management, mental health counseling, financial literacy education, employment counseling and referral services.

CEO Experience

Milo Peinemann joined as our new Chief Executive Officer in November 2017. An experienced professional in permanent supportive housing and homeless services, Milo has a proven track record in the successful construction, operation and expansion of housing and homeless programs. Milo comes to American Family Housing during what we see as a moment of inflection in the effort to end homelessness as we know it. What excites us is the passion and thoughtfulness that he brings to every discussion. He looks past the horizon but also has the practical know-how to get things done. Milo’s major focus for us will be to address homelessness in ways that are collaborative and effective, but also less costly to taxpayers than leaving it to hospitals, the justice system and emergency response personnel to manage on their own. Most recently, Milo worked with homeless veterans at a Los Angeles-based nonprofit, overseeing the creation and start-up of a range of homeless services programs and the expansion of real estate housing development. He received his B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master of Planning from the University of Southern California. He has presented at conferences held by the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, the Southern California Association of Non-Profit Housing, the Affordable Housing Management Association, and Housing California. He is co-chair of the Housing & Homelessness Working Group at the USC Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families.
