Legacy Square Named 2024 OC Project of the Year 

Legacy Square, a 93-home affordable housing community developed by National CORE, the City of Santa Ana and the Santa Ana United Methodist Church, has been named the 2024 Project of the Year by the Orange County Affordable Housing Awards.

The award was announced April 11 during the 2024 Affordable Housing Awards (AHA) Breakfast. The AHA honors individuals and organizations that further the cause of affordable housing for extremely low-income families throughout Orange County.

“Legacy Square is a model for what is possible,” National CORE President Mike Ruane said. “It represents the power of deep public-private partnerships and innovative approaches to creating affordable housing solutions that serve the entire community.”
