ABOUT SEQUOIA VILLAGE
Sequoia Village is a former 50 unit-motel in Visalia, California, converted to permanent housing for individuals and families at risk of homelessness, via a $5.2 million California Department of Housing and Community Development Project Homekey grant. Project Homekey enables a rapid renovation to immediately house those who are in need of shelter and experiencing effects of Covid-19.
Sequoia Village will convert 45-50 units into permanent supportive efficiency apartments complete with kitchens, five of which will be ADA mobility accessible. The units will be made affordable through operating subsidies provided by the Kings/Tulare Homeless Alliance and services will be offered on-site by Tulare County Mental Health/RFP Recipient.
The project will continue to be rehabbed utilizing a variety of federal, state, and local funding sources. The project has strong local support and is a partnership between UPholdings, Tulare County, non-profit corporation Housing on Merit, and local developer and property manager RH Community Builders. With the first phase of renovation complete as of December 2020, the Sequoia Village team looks forward to finalizing its construction timeline for phase II.
