Arrowhead Grove Redevelopment

Look What’s Coming to Arrowhead Grove

For over 70 years, the community formerly known as Waterman Gardens been home to countless families, providing affordable housing since 252 Public Housing units were built there in 1943.  In 2013, the Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino (HACSB) partnered with National Community Renaissance to redevelop the aging property and bring new opportunities to the community.

Three phases of redevelopment have been completed, replacing the original 1940’s units with 283 new affordable units and 36 market-rate units. The next phases will bring additional affordable housing and a community resource center.

New Affordable Homes

In continued partnership with National CORE, HACSB will bring 92 additional units of affordable multifamily housing to the community through the next phase of redevelopment.  Units from one- to three-bedrooms will be available to low-income households.  HACSB has already been awarded $10 million to support the development and additional fundraising is underway.  Potential groundbreaking is projected for late 2025.

Community Resource Center

At HACSB, we believe that stable housing is only one step in the path to an empowered life. Along with our many community partners, we are working to bring not only affordable homes to our community, but also resources and opportunities that individuals and families can leverage to build the lives they envision.  We see it as “housing AND.” That is why a key feature of our revitalization efforts for Arrowhead Grove is the development of the Arrowhead Grove Community Resource Center to serve Arrowhead Grove and the surrounding neighborhoods.  The center will house a wide variety of services to support the community.

HACSB has partnered with a consortium of mission-aligned community organizations through the California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI).  This group includes HACSB, the Making Hope Happen Foundation, El Sol, Loma Linda University, and Dignity Health.   The Community Resource Center is one of three major components that will bring additional resources to Arrowhead Grove and neighboring communities.  

The project also received generous support from Congressman Pete Aguilar, who has secured Community Project Funding to help finance the development of the Community Resource Center.  Potential groundbreaking is projected for late 2025.
