Legacy Square

301 E. Santa Ana Boulevard • Santa Ana, California 92701

Legacy Square, a pioneering affordable housing community in the heart of Santa Ana, transforms an underutilized parcel of church-owned land into 93 homes while investing $10 million in community transit amenities, a park and other improvements to the surrounding neighborhood. The 100% affordable community provides one-, two- and three-bedroom homes for individuals and families earning less than 60% of the area median income. Thirty-three homes are reserved for previously unhoused or extremely low-income individuals.

Legacy Square is located on Santa Ana Boulevard adjacent to an Orange County streetcar station and delivers 1,750 square feet of ground-level flexible space for community investment. A 3,800-square-foot community center serves as a neighborhood hub for events and activities provided through the Hope through Housing Foundation and Mercy House.

Information about the Services Providers

Believing that both people and place matter in achieving community-wide well-being, Hope through Housing concentrates on direct services, partnerships, and other resources right in the neighborhoods that need them most. At the individual level, our goal is to see all people thrive—whether that means helping children do well in school, improving families’ financial situations, providing supportive services to individuals with special needs, or making it possible for seniors to age with dignity in their own homes. These individual successes add up, influencing the community’s quality of life and enabling real change in neighborhoods of poverty, crime, blight, and isolation.
