On Jan. 5, 2021, Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation held its groundbreaking ceremony for The Chesterfield — a new housing development for formerly homeless seniors in South Los Angeles. This community of 42 supportive homes is expected to open in mid 2022. The ceremony was attended by Mayor Eric Garcetti. 

Residents at The Chesterfield will benefit from wrap-around services provided by St. Joseph Center, including dedicated case management, physical and mental health care, employment training, and peer support.

Financing for The Chesterfield draws on a unique mix of sources, including funding from Wells Fargo Bank, The California Department of Housing and Community Development Infill Infrastructure Grant, City of Los Angeles HHH funds, Los Angeles County Development Authority No Place Like Home funds, and CCRC.
