About Our Partnerships

Even though PACE programs do not provide or pay for housing, St. Paul’s PACE has worked with local San Diego developers and the San Diego Housing Commission to provide low-income, supportive housing to specific groups of seniors who qualify for St. Paul’s PACE. These housing developments are usually limited to those who have been or are homeless.

Do I Qualify?

St. Paul’s PACE Supportive Housing Partnerships

St. Paul’s PACE works directly with transitional housing organizations to identify and qualify seniors for these housing opportunities. Please contact our Supportive Housing Manager, Mark Lim, at (619) 677-3868 to learn more about when St. Paul’s will have a housing project available.

Thanks to our housing partnerships between St. Paul’s Senior Services, Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation, and the City Heights Community Development Corporation, more than 200 seniors are no longer homeless.

All seniors who qualify for our supportive housing are enrolled in the St. Paul’s PACE program.

In the summer of 2017, our collaborative efforts culminated with the grand opening of Talmadge Gateway. It was the very first 100 percent, permanent supportive housing community in San Diego, a $20.7 million complex exclusively for formerly homeless seniors with medical needs that require ongoing support. St. Paul’s PACE provides comprehensive medical services at Talmage Gateway that help the residents thrive.

History of Supportive Housing Partnerships

Since 2013, St. Paul’s Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) has developed partnerships with various housing developers to provide wrap-around supportive services to formerly homeless (or at risk of homelessness) seniors. The developers provide the housing and St. Paul’s PACE finds the homeless seniors and qualifies them for PACE.

Below you will see the history of the supportive housing programs St. Paul’s PACE is involved in. St. Paul’s PACE has placed more than 200 formerly homeless seniors into “housing first” programs with all medical and social support programs provided.
