The developer of the project is the San Diego Interfaith Housing Foundation. They have entered into a long-term agreement with the Community Development Agency Board. to construct, operate, and maintain the complex. The members of the Agency board are the same members as the members of the city council.

San Diego Interfaith Housing Foundation (SDIHF) currently manages an interest list that allows them to communicate the progress of the project to interested individuals. At this time they are not accepting names for a waiting list for prospective tenants. Please note, being added to the interest list does not affect the possibility of tenancy in the property. It is simply a communication list. Once the site is further developed, SDIHF will notify the public of the process to apply for residency in the property.

Senior Police Volunteer Patrol

The Police Senior Volunteer Patrol is the largest volunteer organization in the City. Over 40 active seniors currently serve as the "eyes and ears" of the Police Department. The program, currently in its eighth year, has served as a model for many small police departments throughout the country.
Volunteering between four and twenty hours a week, participants assist the Police Department in a variety of activities. Out in the field, they provide traffic control, give warnings of violations and conduct home security checks for residents who are on vacation. These volunteers also assist at special events, such as the Fourth of July parade or safety and crime prevention fairs. At the station, they give tours, take fingerprints, log personal property, file reports, enter data and answer phones.
Senior volunteers may come from different backgrounds, but they share two common traits - a desire to help others and be involved in their community. The Patrol is made up of seniors age 55 and older, with an average age of 75. Volunteers have professional backgrounds that include military officers and pilots, FBI agents, physicians, attorneys, homemakers, and bankers. Some even maintain full-time jobs while serving in the program. No law enforcement experience is required, but volunteers are carefully screened and attend an 80-hour training academy with additional monthly training.
"The volunteer program provides extra protection to the community and its residents and business owners, and it's good for our seniors," said Police Department Community
