Latest Bridge Housing Communities Memorandum

San Jose's Housing Department released its memorandum and recommendations for the Bridge Housing Communities project to be discussed at the City Council meeting next Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

HomeFirst is the service provider for the Bridge Housing Project – which under the auspices of the City of San Jose will provide a site with 40 sleeping individual units built by Habitat for Humanity with a complementary mixed-use common area including laundry, bathroom/shower facilities and kitchen services. The 40 residents per site will be individual adults already working or with a viable work history making them employable.
