Local leaders celebrated the grand opening of Second Street Studios - a new affordable housing development that has dedicated 100% of its apartments to formerly homeless individuals. Since opening its doors recently, Second Street Studios has provided safe, stable and affordable housing for 155 of our most vulnerable residents, ending a combined 400+ years of homelessness.
Second Street Studios is the region's largest permanent supportive housing development, with 134 studios and one-bedroom apartments. Supportive housing combines deeply affordable apartments with on-site services that are critical to helping vulnerable and chronically homeless individuals remain stably housed. In fact, 92% of formerly homeless individuals who have been connected to permanent supportive housing remain stably housed 12 months later.
The opening of Second Street Studios is the result of a unique collaboration between public and private partners dedicated to ending homelessness in our community, including the City of San José, County of Santa Clara, State of California, Santa Clara County Housing Authority, First Community Housing, Abode Services, John Stewart Company, Cisco and Destination: Home.
Second Street Studios was successful due to these strong partnerships and is now the home of 155 residents in San José!
