In Southeast L.A. County, the Salvation Army is cooking up plans for new permanent supportive housing.

In 2018, the non-profit completed work on the Bell Oasis Apartments, a 64-unit just east of the L.A. River and 710 Freeway. Now, according to an initial study published by the City of Bell, the Salvation Army is planning a sequel development: the Bell Oasis Apartments II.

Plans also call for administrative and supportive service spaces, as a well as a recreation room, outdoor decks, a fitness room, a garden area, and a library.

Construction of the apartment complex is expected to occur in a single 16-month period, commencing in June 2024 and concluding by November 2025. That schedule is contingent on the approval of a zone change and a conditional use permit to facilitate the project.

The Salvation Army, in addition to its developments in Bell, has also built new permanent supportive housing in the City of Pasadena.
