San Bernardino Community Wellness Campus

 

WHO

WE

ARE

 

For 76 years, Lutheran Social Services of Southern California has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to helping the most vulnerable families and individuals in Southern California.

Our roots date back to 1944 when a handful of congregants from Lutheran churches in San Diego began providing services and resources to veterans returning home. This group joined with like-minded congregants in Los Angeles and formed LSSSC in 1946. Today, we employ almost 200 caring and dedicated staff that deliver more than 30 programs in 20 locations across six
counties. We are a social ministry organization with the Lutheran Services of America, one of the largest health and human service networks in America. Our partners and funders include the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health, and US Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services.

We propose Community Wellness Campuses that provide integrative services to Southern California’s most vulnerable populations.

The objective of the project is to develop a Community Wellness Campus that adopts a holistic paradigm to provide housing and sustainability services. The first Community Wellness Campus will be built on more than 3 acres of land in the vicinity of the Interstate 215 corridor. The project will revitalize the community and allow various housing types and supportive services as well as open and recreation spaces. It will be ADA accessible and have pathways connecting all buildings for efficiency and ease of access.

The number of homeless individuals in San Bernardino County is increasing and more than 26% live in the City. In the 2019/20 school year, 30,270 San Bernardino County K-12 students were identified as homeless or lacking secure housing. This represents seven percent (7%) of total enrollment.

WHY WE

PLAN

 

More than 30,000 San Bernardino County children lack secure housing.

 

17.2% of families in the City of San Bernardino live in poverty, the highest rate in the county.

 

HOW

WE

PLAN

 

The campus was designed following an intensive landscape analysis that assessed the community’s unique strengths and challenges.

The final project will result in a campus that delivers housing and sustainability services and integrates and coordinates a myriad of needed services to the community. The campus will have a center devoted to the delivery of afterschool services, offer workforce development, along with a newly constructed emergency shelter, transitional and supportive housing units, and administrative buildings. Other facilities designed to facilitate care coordination are also included in the project.

The campus’ community food market, run by the participants of the workforce development program, will allow the array of campus services to be financially sustainable.
