Permanent Supportive Housing in Pasadena

750-x-625-Housing-in-CA-condos.jpgThe city of Pasadena allocates $3 million annually to fund housing and supportive services for individuals, families, and youth in an effort to end homelessness in their community. Multi-unit housing sites Marv's Place, Euclid Villa, and Centennial Place provide permanent homes for formerly homeless families in the region. Each location offers onsite supportive services with tools and resources to help end the cycle of homelessness and increase long-term stability.

Permanent supportive housing is one facet to the multi-pronged approach employed by the city of Pasadena. Over the last decade the city has seen a 54 percent drop in homelessness, and formerly homeless residents have a safe place to build a new foundation and grow their future.
