A decade in the making with support from the City of Anaheim, Jamboree Housing Corporation (Jamboree), U.S. Bancorp Impact Finance, and Disneyland Resort, Finamore Place is now officially open, bringing critically needed affordable housing to the City of Anaheim AND a brand-new Community Center. “Finamore Place Community Collaborative” serves as a premier model of Jamboree's innovative approach to community development. Open and accessible to all, this Center features mental, healthcare and educational services that previously were lacking, or unavailable, within the area. Thanks to these entities' collaboration, families and individuals in Anaheim will now have access to St. Jude Neighborhood Health Center, with free medical services for Medi-Cal patients and pediatrics, women's health/prenatal care, and optometry services. In addition, Orange County Head Start's 3,800-square-foot early education center exists to meet the educational, emotional, social, health, and nutritional needs of low-income children and families; and a Child Guidance Center offers families behavioral health services, including Parent Child Interaction Therapy, ADHD treatment, children’s behavior management therapy and Military Veterans Family Treatment and Support. Finamore Place is named as a lasting tribute to Marcy Finamore, whose passion for Jamboree’s mission to provide high-quality housing and community services helped propel them to their leadership position today.
