Wilson Avenue Apartments
In December of 1995, Townspeople developed San Diego’s first rehabilitated apartment complex for low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS. We were proud to have established our Wilson Avenue Apartments, which consist of 8 one-bedroom units. This project represented some of the first permanent supportive housing (PSH) units in the City of San Diego. Each of the complex’s 8-units includes a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen with new appliances. Shared amenities include a patio area with a colorful wall mural and a barbecue.
51st Street Project
Almost a decade later, Townspeople opened its 51st Street Project in October of 2007. The project is a 24-unit apartment complex rehabbed specifically for the very-low-income and special needs homeless population in San Diego. Each of the complex’s 24 studio units includes a living room, bathroom, and kitchen with new appliances; and shared amenities include a barbecue area and landscaped yard. The complex is protected by a 24-hour gated security system as well as an on-site manager.
34th Street Project
In January 2011, Townspeople opened its 34th Street Project. The project is a 34-unit apartment complex: 20 one-bedroom/one-bath and 14 two-bedroom/two-bath units. 18 of the units are permanent supportive housing units with case management services. Building amenities include a gated common entry, a courtyard area, 34 parking spaces, an on-site laundry facility, full security system and solar panels to lower the costs of electricity for our clients.
Vista del Puente
In November 2018, Townspeople opened its fourth property in collaboration with National Community Renaissance (National CORE) . Vista del Puente was developed to increase the stock of affordable housing in the City of San Diego, specifically in the Southcrest community where the need for affordable housing is identified in the Southeast San Diego Community Plan update. Critical to the Townspeople mission and to Vista del Puente is the 38 serviced enriched units targeted to homeless individuals with a disability or serious illness with a specific focus on those living with HIV/AIDS. 26 of the 38-units will be reserved for homeless Veteran individuals and/or families with a disability or serious illness, with a specific focus on homeless veterans living with HIV/AIDS.
