  • 10 single rooms for rent with shared common areas for any formerly homeless man

Sherman Avenue Single Room Occupancy (SRO) provides 10 Single Room Occupancy (SRO) units for men who were once homeless.

This program represents the most tangible step towards independence within the Coalition's continuum of care. Men, who were once homeless, now pay rent, buy and prepare their own food. Men who are in this program have demonstrated that they are ready for independent living and are prepared to assume appropriate responsibility for their lives.

The men residing at Sherman Avenue have demonstrated that they are ready for independent living and are prepared to assume appropriate responsibility for their lives. Most of the tenants eventually move on and find traditional one or two bedroom apartments.

Each building has a common kitchen, bathroom, living room and dining area. Sherman Avenue has ten single rooms for rent, which are available to any formerly homeless men. Most of the tenants are graduates of the Coalition’s shelter and transitional programs. The SRO tenants form a partnership with the Coalition to remain alcohol and drug free during their tenancy.
