Affordable housing actually helps a community maintain a stable population by making it easier to retain people who already live and work there. There is no evidence that affordable housing brings crime to a neighborhood. In fact, affordable housing, as a tool of economic development, often helps to lower crime rates.

A development becomes an asset to a community through careful screening, prudent security measures, and regular maintenance and upkeep. Most affordable housing residents are seeking safe and decent housing that will allow them to live self-sufficient lives in a good community.

The application process for prospective Jamboree residents includes income verification, a credit check, a criminal background investigation, and a tenant interview. Many Jamboree communities participate in local Crime Free Multi-Housing Programs and maintain strong working relationships with local emergency services.
