INNOVATION: Blue Butterfly Village


Blue Butterfly Village is VOALA’s innovative 73-unit 2BR townhouse community located in the San Pedro area of Los Angeles County. All 73 units are subsidized for homeless families. Veteran families receive a preference for 61 of the units. 12 units are reserved for families eligible under the MHSA program. We house many Female Veterans with children.

Amenities include a garage, private office/meeting space, community rooms, meeting/conference room, in unit washer/dryer, children’s play area and community walking path. Each unit is fully furnished and all utilities are included in the rent.

Blue Butterfly Village is also home to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Protected Palos Verdes Blue Butterfly Sanctuary.

VOALA programs address the myriad issues facing Veterans and their families including depression, anxiety, PTSD, TBI, substance use disorders, homelessness, unemployment, and lack of education. Our support helps Veterans overcome the barriers that stand between them and a stable, secure life. Mental health, housing, employment and case management is at the core of our Veterans programs.
