The City of San José and DignityMoves Officially Announce Groundbreaking of New 150-bed Interim Housing Community at Via del Oro

The City of San José, in partnership with DignityMoves, officially announced the groundbreaking of a new 150-bed interim supportive housing community (ISH).

The La Posada interim housing community will house individuals living in encampments in the immediate area. This community will have 80 rooms, provide 24/7 security, intensive case management for each resident, 3 meals a day as well as mental and physical health care services.

DignityMoves Success Propelled by Partnership with Women's Fund of Santa Barbara

With the generous support of the Women's Fund of Santa Barbara, including the $125,000 grant this year, we are making significant strides in reducing unsheltered homelessness. Together, we are expanding our interim housing communities and impact in Santa Barbara County.

Interim Supportive Housing Act

In collaboration with lawmakers and community leaders, we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to co-sponsor groundbreaking legislation that has the potential to transform the way our community addresses unsheltered homelessness. SB 1395, also known as The Interim Supportive Housing Act, represents a pivotal step forward in our collective mission to provide stability, dignity, and hope to those who need it most.

A Closer Look at La Posada

The DignityMoves community in downtown Santa Barbara has been so well-received that the County Board of Supervisors voted to partner with DignityMoves to build an additional 300 rooms – enough interim supportive housing to help close the “shelter gap” in the county. The effort includes the La Posada interim housing community, located at 4500 Hollister. La Posada provides housing to individuals living in encampments in the immediate area.
