SPARC INC. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation created to empower homeowners residing in affordable manufactured home communities by identifying and connecting them with health, wellness and educational services and programs.
SPARC was founded in 2007 by Millennium Housing, one of the larges housing charities in California. While providing a high quality, affordable living environment is a worthy goal, Millennium wanted to do more. To that end, SPARC was created to provide and/or facilitate the provision of social services and other opportunities to residents of Millennium Communities.
SPARC is an acronym which stands for "Services and Programs Assisting Residents in our Communities." These services and programs have included health resource fairs, after-school enrichment, college scholarships, food programs, exercise classes, holiday assistance programs and a multitude of other health and education related services pertaining to the specific needs of a given community. SPARC encourages and takes into consideration the suggestions given by residents when coordinating programs.
SPARC works with 20 affordable housing communities throughout Northern and Southern California. Of the thousands of residents that live in the communities we serve, approximately 80% live in lower-income households.
