A new apartment complex in Oxnard is addressing the problem of affordable housing for homeless veterans and other former service members in Ventura County.
On Monday, 11 veterans moved into Ormond Beach Villas, a complex opened by affordable-housing nonprofit Many Mansions that eventually will house 39 veterans and their families. The townhouse-style complex consists of 15 one-bedroom, 20 two-bedroom and five three-bedroom apartments at 5527-5567 Saviers Road.
“Many Mansions is excited to bring this needed housing to our veterans and their families. Ventura County is home to over 44,000 veterans, and is ranked as the 13th least affordable county in the nation,” Rick Schroeder, president of Many Mansions, stated in a news release.
