Project Hope Alliance Expands Services To Wesley Village In Garden Grove

We are proud to announce that we have partnered with Jamboree Housing Corporation to expand our services to Wesley Village, a unique multi-use urban campus in Garden Grove. The multigenerational affordable housing community will offer educational, social, and health services to residents, as well as the larger community.

We are incredibly grateful for the tremendous opportunity, trust, and resources being afforded to Project Hope Alliance that will allow us to collaboratively seek an end to generational poverty. The space not only gives us a brick and mortar presence in northern Orange County, but also allows for Project Hope Alliance to invest in the growth of our programming and case management team—instead of real estate and overhead. This directly translates into the expansion of much-needed services and demonstrates the collective impact that the strategic leveraging of resources can have in our community.
— Jennifer Friend, CEO Project Hope Alliance

Project Hope Alliance brings a wealth of resources, experience, expertise, and opportunities for new residents at Wesley Village as well as new and existing Project Hope Alliance families to be served at the site. An ongoing dialogue between Project Hope Alliance, Wesley Village residents, and other onsite service providers will fuel a dynamic, collaborative partnership for years to come. Project Hope Alliance occupies a nearly 1,500-square-foot space in the Family Building.

A third building houses a Head Start Learning Center, adult day care, behavioral health services, and after-school activities, plus a range of other social, education, and health services available to Wesley Village residents and the community at large—all facilitated by Jamboree's Community Impact Group.

Jamboree is excited to have Project Hope Alliance join our team of high capacity partners like Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove , Alzheimer’s Orange County, and Lestonnac Free Clinic, who provide complementary services and programming for the families and seniors at Wesley Village as well as the surrounding Garden Grove neighborhood.
