Skid Row Housing Trust

Hosted by

Does quality of design matter when you've got thousands of homeless people to rehouse? Yes, if you are Skid Row Housing Trust, the nonprofit developer that taps creative architects in the belief that well-designed supportive housing can enable recovery from the trauma of living on the streets, and knit housing for the formerly homeless into the life of the city.

DnA talks with the head of Skid Row Housing Trust, residents and architects of Star Apartments, the Six and New Genesis, and the editor of “Design Resources for Homelessness.”
