Our projects push for design equity, the principle that everyone deserves high quality, beautiful design, even, and perhaps, especially, people who have experienced homelessness. The Trust's design is informed by resident voices so that their living space reflects their needs, fostering a greater feeling of ownership.

The Skid Row Housing Trust (the Trust) provides permanent supportive housing so that people who have experienced homelessness, prolonged extreme poverty, poor health, disabilities, mental illness and/or addiction can lead safe, stable lives in wellness.

The Trust handles the operation and maintenance of nearly 1,600 units of housing in 24 buildings. Our attention to building design and resident well-being has given rise to cutting edge buildings and programming that give our residents the opportunity to regain autonomy and dignity. Click Here to apply for housing.

The Trust is pioneering the latest evolution of permanent supportive housing. Partnering with experienced service providers, the Trust provides integrated case management, mental health treatment, substance abuse recovery, and primary healthcare at multiple housing sites and with more in the pipeline.

Skid Row Housing Trust projects are consistently recognized for their excellence in design, architecture and services, not to mention the countless “thank yous” from residents. The ultimate measure of our success is our housing retention rate: over 90% of Trust residents have remained housed for over a year.
