Thriving as a Nonprofit in California’s Building Industry


Orange County Housing Developer Celebrates 20 Years of Achievement

Irvine, CA – June 1, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — In 1990, Jamboree Housing Corporation began in Irvine with just four homes, and one dream: to build quality housing that people could afford. Today more than 16,000 residents in dozens of communities across California call a Jamboree property home.

Jamboree’s 20th Anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate some of the incredible outcomes of its dream. Quality housing that people can afford has the added benefits of generating jobs, promoting healthy living, supporting seniors and those with special needs, and building strong communities. Jamboree calls this the ripple effect.

Laura Archuleta, President of Jamboree Housing Corporation, has successfully forged multiple partnerships across private, government and financial lines to build a business that is prosperous even in this uncertain economy. Under her leadership Jamboree’s portfolio has reached a market value of $1 billion, with nearly a dozen more developments already in the pipeline.

With the hallmark of a year-long commemoration approaching – “Synchronicity: A Celebration of the Ripple Effect” on Thursday, June 10, 2010 – Archuleta would be an excellent interview source for the importance of stable, affordable housing in local communities, and brings a unique perspective as a woman in the construction industry who is leading a thriving nonprofit in a state with one of the highest unemployment rates.

During her eleven years as the company’s top executive, Jamboree has grown from a small, Irvine-based nonprofit housing developer with 1,700 homes into a statewide provider of more than 6,500 affordable homes for families and seniors in 55 communities. Archuleta is articulate, knowledgeable in addressing misperceptions about affordable housing, and informed about current market and development trends.

If you are interested in interviewing Archuleta, please let us know. We would be happy to send you her bio, more information on any of Jamboree’s properties or a list of questions and answers with her in whatever format works best for you.

Celebrating 20 years, Jamboree Housing Corporation is an award-winning, broad-based nonprofit housing development company that develops, acquires, renovates and manages permanently affordable rental and ownership housing for working families and seniors throughout California. Housing with HEART (Helping Educate, Activate and Respond Together) is a 501 (c)(3) organization and Jamboree’s resident services group. A year-long commemoration of Jamboree’s 20th elevates the ripple effect of providing high quality affordable housing that generates more jobs, creates supportive housing for seniors and those with special needs, promotes healthy living and builds stronger communities. A leading nonprofit developer, Jamboree’s portfolio includes the development of and/or ownership interest in more than 6,500 affordable homes in more than 55 California communities. Currently, Housing with HEART programs and services are offered at 32 Jamboree communities with designated staff at each location. More information is available at
