It All Begins With A Home ...
Opening Doors and Transforming Lives
Where many were homeless, SRO Housing Corporation has created homes. With more than 34 years of experience, SRO Housing has embraced a more comprehensive and holistic approach to eradicating homelessness by providing the full continuum, of housing; short-term/emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing (PSH)—all in private units.
We are the largest provider of affordable single-room-occupancy in the Western United States. We have assisted more than 2,300 formerly homeless and low-income men and women in our emergency housing, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing comprised of 30 sites with 400 housing units currently in development.
