Building Homes to End Homelessness

Our development and rehabilitation projects provide quality affordable housing that supports resident well-being — and that of the community at large.

The Resetar Residential Hotel, offering affordable homes in the heart of historic Watsonville.


The shortage of affordable housing is a major contributing factor to homelessness in our community. As part of our efforts to address homelessness and improve access to housing, we build and/or rehabilitate affordable housing through two strategic housing development alliances.

Our most recent housing development, Vermont House in San Jose, held its grand opening in late 2018. Read more about Vermont House and our other housing sites at our Abode Projects web page.

One of our strategic allies, Allied Housing, offers housing combined with services (provided by Abode Services staff) to families and individuals who are formerly homeless and living with special needs. Its most recent project, Main Street Village, opened in 2011 and houses over 100 adults and children.

Allied Housing partnered with MidPen Housing to develop Laguna Commons, a supportive housing community that opened in Fremont in 2016. Laguna Commons offers 64 new homes to at-risk households, including over a third of the units dedicated to veteran families.

Through a strategic alliance with Santa Clara County-based Housing for Independent People (HIP), Abode Services gained additional capacity to end homelessness for vulnerable families and individuals. Abode now manages almost 20 former HIP properties throughout San Jose and Santa Clara County, as well as the Resetar Residential Hotel in Watsonville. The approximately 200 households living in these properties have stable housing and access to supportive services through Abode Services.

Abode Services also engages with local municipalities and private developers to share our expertise in affordable housing development and rehabilitation, and to carry out projects intended to develop housing that meets the needs of formerly homeless households, veteran families, chronically homeless individuals, and other vulnerable groups.
