Step Up On Second

Santa Monica, CA
$250,000
December 2013

Step Up On Second is renovating a former motel in Hollywood to provide permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless adults and transitional age youth suffering from mental illness.  The facility, known as Michael’s Village, will consist of 32 units, six of which will be set aside for very vulnerable, mentally ill, homeless youth in the community.  HUD housing vouchers will cover the tenants’ rent and supportive services will be provided by Step Up’s case managers.  This project is part of Step Up’s commitment to develop 200 permanent supportive housing units in Hollywood.  With the completion of Michael’s Village, Step Up will have developed 90 units and has another 95 units in the planning stage.
