A groundbreaking on Thursday officially started construction in Lancaster for Kensington Campus, a facility to provide shelter and services for the homeless.
InSite Development LLC in Woodland Hills partnered with nonprofit The People Concern and Los Angeles County on the project expected to be completed next year on an empty plot.
Under the visionary leadership of the City of Lancaster and County of Los Angeles, InSite Development in conjunction with The People Concern will break ground on Kensington Campus, a fourteen-acre paradigm shift in ending the lack of a permanent solution to homelessness. This development proves what true public-private partnerships can accomplish by fast-tracking a solution that will come to fruition in 15 months, instead of the typical eight years. As yet another first from the City of Lancaster, Kensington Campus will serve as the model for other municipalities who are motivated to mitigate homelessness today, and in the future.
