Health & Home: Building Wellness in the Heart of Live Oak
1500 Capitola Road is a vibrant health and housing campus that addresses critical needs for increased access to healthcare and affordable housing. The first mixed-use development of its kind in Santa Cruz unites:
Santa Cruz Community Health to build a 20,000 square foot, two-story facility that provides medical, behavioral health, and specialty care with a focus on pediatrics (open 2021). Our mission is to improve the health of our patients and the community and advocate the feminist goals of social, political, and economic equality.
Dientes Community Dental Care to build a new 11-chair clinic in a 11,000 square foot facility that includes a second story headquarters for administrative staff (open 2021). We are on a mission to create lasting oral health for the low-income children, adults and seniors of Santa Cruz County and neighboring communities.
MidPen Housing to build 57 residential units, filling a critical gap in affordable housing in Santa Cruz, one of the most expensive housing markets in the country (open 2022). Our mission is to provide safe, affordable housing of high quality to those in need and to establish stability and opportunity in the lives of our residents.
