Helping During Quarantine

SAN DIEGO - Residents at Wakeland's properties are continuing to benefit from the shift to "Remote Resident Services" over the past months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The last few weeks have brought several successes. We've delivered more than 66,000 pounds of food to residents at our San Diego properties. Our service coordinators have worked by phone and email to match residents with a variety of income supports, including the Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants program, which provides qualified households with $500 per adult. Meanwhile, in Riverside, CA, our service partners at Mercy House secured curbside food deliveries for our residents at Home Front at Camp Anza, which serves veterans and their families.
And residents at our six San Diego South Bay properties are about to complete Wakeland's U.S. Bank-funded Individual Development Account Program. This 10-month specialized matching savings/financial literacy program helps participants form solid savings habits and secure a nest egg through regular deposits into a savings account. This year's class saved a total of $10,000!
Thank you to our hard-working Resident Services staff and congratulations residents!
