One of the first of its kind in San Jose, Villas on the Park will offer 84 units of permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless in the downtown core of the City of San Jose.  Located at 290 N. 2nd Street, a half block north of the historic St. James Park, Villas on the Park will include 83 LIHTC studios for formerly homeless individuals and an on-site resident manager's unit. This new model of housing will offer numerous services to assist the homeless residents and encourage them to, again, contribute to society.
