The Episcopal Housing Alliance (EHA) was created by the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles to develop community-based partnerships with public and private agencies to meet the increasing need for a wide-range of affordable housing for low and moderate-income individuals and families.

EHA (formerly the Institute for Urban Research and Development) has developed a wide-range of successful housing programs now operated by other private agencies in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties that have included:

Homeless prevention
Emergency shelter
Transitional housing
Permanent supportive housing and
Permanent affordable housing

These programs serve thousands of individuals and families, and represent a history of flourishing partnerships with numerous private agencies and local jurisdictions including Glendale, Huntington Beach, Pomona, Long Beach, Riverside, Pasadena, Redondo Beach, Costa Mesa and San Bernardino.

The Episcopal Housing Alliance (EHA) is presently engaged in expanding its work with public and private partners to begin developing, owning, operating and managing affordable housing complexes to serve not only low and middle-income households, but also special needs populations. Current projects include:

Preserving/owning/ operating/and managing
136 beds of senior housing in Redondo Beach;

operating/and managing
36 beds of senior housing in Costa Mesa

Preserving/owning/ operating/and managing
12 beds of transitional housing for victims of domestic violence in El Monte.

Join The Episcopal Housing Alliance as we seek new partnerships with an expanding circle of public and private agencies in order to achieve our vision of a broad geographical distribution of affordable housing throughout Southern California.

Everywhere cities and towns have increasing numbers of residents who are challenged to maintain their housing because they are unable to afford their rents or mortgages. Many residents simply can not obtain affordable rents or mortgages.

EHA is dedicated to addressing this challenge and will actively seek to combine its own resources - including fund raising and existing designated funds - with public and private partners to help local residents find and maintain affordable housing opportunities.
