Marv’s Place Gets Homeless Families Off The Streets of Pasadena and Into Permanent Housing

The years-long project, located on the northwest corner of North Mar Vista Avenue and Union Street, is an ambitious effort spearheaded by the City and other local organizations with a common goal and determination to combat chronic homelessness one family at at time.

“Marv’s Place is a model effort on a number of levels. It is the first affordable housing development specifically designed for formerly homeless families in the City of Pasadena, a critical component of the City’s efforts to help individuals and families transition from homelessness, and a great example of collective impact making a difference,” said President and CEO of National Community Renaissance (CORE) Steve PonTell, the project’s nonprofit owner and developer.
