The State of California’s homelessness and housing affordability crisis are impacting nearly every city in the state. Yesterday, Disneyland Resort became the first private donor to the Orange County Housing Trust with a $5 million dollar grant to support housing plans in Anaheim.
“Communities need permanent supportive housing to help address homelessness and the housing affordability challenges impacting nearly every city throughout California,” said Josh D’Amaro, President of Disneyland Resort. “We are proud to support the Orange County Housing Trust with a $5 million grant that will be focused on Anaheim-based projects and look forward to the Trust’s role in addressing this need in our community.”
The newly revitalized Orange County Housing Trust (OCHT) is a non-profit organization working towards increasing the supply and availability of affordable housing in Orange County. With Disneyland Resort’s grant, the Manchester Project will be able to break ground in 2020 on the 102-unit affordable housing development in Anaheim.
“With Orange County’s affordable housing crisis growing to epic proportions, we are so grateful to Disneyland Resort for stepping up to play an important part in solving this issue,” said Helen O’Sullivan, Executive Director of Orange County Housing Trust. “With this generous donation by Disneyland Resort, and matching donations from our business community, we will be able to efficiently bridge the funding gap for this much-needed project and many others in the region, ultimately reducing homelessness and enhancing the quality of life for all Orange County residents.”
