Opening Doors and Transforming Lives


Where many were homeless, SRO Housing Corporation has created homes.  With more than 39 years of experience, SRO Housing has embraced a more comprehensive and holistic approach to eradicating homelessness by providing the full continuum of housing; short-term/emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing (PSH)—all in private units.


We are the largest provider of affordable single-room-occupancy homes in the Western United States. Over 2,500 formerly homeless and low-income men and women reside in our 32 properties and we have over 100 homes currently in development.





SRO Housing Corporation is a community-based non-profit dedicated to building vibrant communities for homeless and low-income individuals in Los Angeles.  We are committed to restoring a sense of dignity, civility, and respect for a population that has been habitually ignored and forgotten.

SRO Housing Corporation oversees all housing development projects undertaken by the organization. Projects include the reconstruction and rehabilitation of existing buildings, capital improvements to existing buildings and the construction of new sites.

SRO Housing Corporation opened the James M. Wood Community Center in 2002.  The Center serves as both a catalyst and resource for community recovery as well as an important home to community-building efforts. Three community spaces are available for meetings and special events.

Purchase "It All Begins with a Home" on Amazon, the book also makes a powerful and inspiring gift.

For over 39 years, SRO Housing has transformed lives in the "Skid Row" community of downtown Los Angeles. Along the way, tens of thousands of men and women received the keys to new homes. Many had been homeless for years, even for decades.


SRO Housing Corporation has gathered a moving collection of first-person narratives of lives transformed through housing.
