Ivy Senior Apartments provides 52 supportive homes in San Diego's Clairemont neighborhood for seniors with chronic medical needs who have experienced homelessness. These affordable homes are coupled with robust support services that help residents live more stable, independent lives. This model is known as "Housing First" and has been proven as an effective solution for homelessness, helping some U.S. communities reduce chronic homelessness by as much as 90 percent. Just as in traditional apartment complexes, residents sign long-term leases and must follow specific house rules that ensure quiet, safe enjoyment of the residential community.
The design includes studio apartments, a community room, a laundry room, office space and a nurse's office. A central courtyard with seating areas provides space for socializing outdoors.
Ivy Senior Apartments will help alleviate the City of San Diego's growing need for supportive housing for the homeless by using a proven model for reducing homelessness. It will also help to spur revitalization by replacing an outdated office building with a beautiful, new community of affordable homes designed by a nationally-recognized architecture firm.
