In March of 2017, the Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino (HACSB) purchased the former Queen’s Motel, originally comprised of 60-units, for the purpose of converting the building into a permanent supportive housing complex for the chronic homeless. The City partnered with HACSB by providing financial assistance in the form of a loan in the amount of $1,509,505 as reimbursement of acquisition costs. The building, now named Desert Haven, has been rehabilitated and converted into a 31-unit single or double occupancy apartment complex. HACSB will make the units affordable through the use of housing vouchers, with rent not to exceed 30% of a resident’s adjusted gross income. Desert Haven is anticipated to be fully leased by December 2020. Desert Haven residents have been identified and pre-qualified by HACSB and will have access to community amenities.
