Transitional Housing Facility, Prefabricated, Community Gathering Areas

This project is a build-out of a transitional housing community comprised of two-story, prefabricated Factory_OS, HCD-approved, modular buildings in partnership with DignityMoves, Five Keys Schools and Programs, and the City of Alameda. The new facility includes 47-bedroom units with bathrooms, some of which are ADA accessible. Five of the units are for at-risk/homeless transitional-age youth.

This interim supportive housing project helps up to 61 unhoused individuals, mainly from the City of Alameda, find a path to stability by providing a safe environment and connecting them to social service resources managed by Five Keys Schools and Programs. This facility is a gated community and staffed 24/7 to help keep the site safe, clean, and running smoothly.

DignityMoves supplied CALMOD prefabricated structures, for administrative space, laundry room, a shared kitchen, dining room, and multipurpose room. The site also has a pet area and 17 parking spaces. This project is funded by the State of California Housing & Community Development Department (HCD)’s Homekey program, City of Alameda, Alameda County Housing & Community Development Department, DignityMoves, and various donors.
