We're Building an Interim Supportive Housing Community in San Jose and You Can Help

DignityMoves and the City of San Jose are embarking on a public-private partnership to build a 150-room interim housing community in San Jose on land owned by John Sobrato at the corner of Via del Oro and San Ignacio. We share the belief that interim supportive housing has the potential to make a profound impact on homelessness, resulting in significant cost savings to society. Under Mayor Matt Mahan’s visionary leadership, San Jose has achieved a remarkable reduction in the number of unsheltered homeless individuals, with more than a 10% decrease attributed to the city’s successful focus on scaling interim housing solutions. With private funding, this 5-year project has the potential to help over 1,500 people on their path out of homelessness while also piloting several innovations. 



Transforming Response to Homelessness in San Jose

San Jose - Via del Oro

DignityMoves and the City of San Jose are embarking on a public-private partnership to build a 150-room interim supportive housing community in San Jose at the corner of Via del Oro and San Ignacio. The city has exhausted all available city-owned parcels, so accomplishing its goal of ending unsheltered homelessness will require the help of private landowners. John Sobrato will lease the site to the city for $1, encouraging others to follow suit. By prioritizing placements for those sleeping in the immediate area, the resulting visible improvement will help reassure other resistant neighborhoods.


DignityMoves will partner with a local service provider to offer a wide range of onsite features and services, creating a safe and dignified community for residents.


Demonstrating a clear intent to address homelessness as the crisis that it is, the San Jose City Council has unanimously authorized broad powers to facilitate rapid development, such as suspending land use and zoning requirements and maximizing legal and administrative flexibility. San Jose is now on track to ending unsheltered homelessness in the city and, more significantly, to break the cycle by providing the necessary support for individuals to resolve their homelessness permanently, establishing a model that can inspire communities nationwide.
