St. Paul’s PACE Supportive Housing Partnerships

St. Paul’s PACE works directly with homeless outreach and transitional housing organizations to identify and qualify seniors for these housing opportunities. Please contact our Supportive Housing Manager, Mark Lim, at (619) 677-3868    mlim@stpaulspace.org 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, Housing Development Partners, Bridge Housing, and the City Heights Community Development Corporation, more than 300 seniors are no longer homeless.

St. Paul’s PACE program is a full-service provider dedicated to helping senior’s live successful, independent lives in the comfort of their own homes.

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?

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.

Testimonials

Bruce

St. Paul’s PACE Participant

Bruce has lived at Talmadge Gateway, a Wakeland supportive housing community in San Diego, since 2017. Prior to that, Bruce was living on the streets for over two years while struggling with various health issues that he could not get treatment for. When Bruce moved into Talmadge, the community had a partnership with the St. Paul’s PACE medial program for seniors, so he enrolled and finally got treatment for his illnesses. Bruce says “I am alive because of St. Paul’s PACE.” Now, Bruce is a major advocate for supportive housing combined with medical services like PACE; in fact, he has invited multiple San Diego politicians to tour Talmadge, including District 4 Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria. Recently, Bruce received two prestigious awards honoring his advocacy efforts. These include the Wise Elder Change Maker Award from UCSD and the Outstanding Advocate Award through the San Diego Housing Federation’s Ruby Awards. Bruce is also a member of the San Diego Housing Federation and a Board Member of the Townspeople

Maria

St. Paul’s PACE Participant

Maria was always used to living in a home with her family, but several years ago, things started to go downhill for her. After her kids grew up and went on their own, Maria began bouncing around staying at friends’ homes and she even lived in her friend’s car for a while. One day, a friend of hers who lived in supportive housing told Maria about the St. Paul’s PACE program and how it helped him with housing. Now, Maria is a St. Paul’s PACE participant and is living in her own home at Celadon, a supportive housing community in downtown San Diego. Maria says she is getting her self-esteem back and it is helping her become a responsible person again. At Celadon, Maria practices her art during the provided art classes, enjoys the community spaces, and plants in the community garden. Maria says, “It’s great to be able to walk with my head up instead of looking down all the time. I’m very grateful for the help I’ve received.”
