National CORE is working to develop a new residential community affordable to lower-income seniors ages 62+ in the unincorporated community of East Los Angeles. The apartment home community will include an array of amenities, including a senior-oriented community room to serve as a hub for supportive services and programs.

The development has been designed to revitalize the currently burned and blighted commercial building and instead transform the property into a high-quality, energy-efficient apartment home building, which will provide safe, clean, and affordable housing for our most vulnerable senior neighbors.

Fetterly Senior will help address the significant and growing need for affordable housing for residents of advanced age, especially those at risk of homelessness in East Los Angeles. It will also provide jobs and financial reinvestment in the neighborhood during the construction and operations phases.

As an owner-operator, National CORE will plan, build, and manage this community for a minimum of 55 years.

Building the Future of Community

For more than 30 years, National CORE has been building award-winning developments in under-resourced neighborhoods, revitalizing the community, bringing new investment and opportunities, and providing the physical platform for community and upward mobility.

As a vertically integrated organization, National CORE engages in all phases of development – planning, development, construction, property management, and resident services – to establish “complete communities.” A leader in energy efficiency and sustainability, National CORE is committed to delivering cost-contained, high-performance developments. National CORE has been named a LEED for Homes Power Builder for five consecutive years.

In 2021, National CORE became only the second affordable housing developer in the nation to earn an A+ credit rating from Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is affordable housing?

Affordable housing refers to housing that a household can pay for while leaving money for necessities like food, transportation, and health care. Most National CORE projects are designed for households earning up to 60% of the Area Median Income or below. The Area Median Income is the bar by which income and rent limits are set. The thresholds are established by HUD and based on County aggregate data.

How long will it take before residents can move in?

It can take between four to six years from when a project starts the local approval process to when residents can move in.

What is supportive housing?

Supportive housing combines community-based affordable housing and access to tailored, voluntary services to help individuals and families with disabilities maintain long-term housing stability and independence. Typically, supportive housing is designed for people who are facing housing insecurity or are otherwise unstably housed, experience multiple barriers to housing, and are unable to maintain housing without supportive services.

Why do we need special needs housing? How is it effective?

People who are homeless or otherwise unstably housed have experiences that generate a lot of stress. Research shows that providing a stable home with onsite supportive services is the most effective way to end homelessness. Resources for residents are provided onsite and include mental and physical health services, employment support, and case management. Residents of supportive homes are assisted every day to help them rebuild their lives and become productive members of their community.

What outreach will occur for the project?

A detailed public participation plan will be developed in partnership with community stakeholders, neighbors and County Staff. We will be holding a series of small group meetings with community organizations, neighborhood groups, elected officials, and neighbors to solicit input and answer questions from the community ahead of design submittals. National CORE will continue to conduct outreach to the community throughout the development stages of the project.

What percent of units will be reserved for those who can demonstrate residency in East LA?

Due to Fair Housing Law, we cannot require that residents be from the East Los Angeles area. However, we have been successful in leading early and targeted marketing efforts and partnering with local organizations to raise local awareness of the leasing timeline and process, to increase application rates from nearby community members.

Who will be the service providers on-site?

National CORE has specially trained staff that live and work on-site, but residents will also be supported by a variety of services through the County of Los Angeles. National CORE also partners with specialized organizations, such as the People Concern and the Hope Through Housing Foundation, to ensure our residents are provided comprehensive wrap-around services to support their success.
