Located just outside of Gardena, Vermont Villas provides affordable and supportive rental homes to seniors who have experienced homelessness. Fifty of the studio and one-bedroom units are reserved for veterans; the remaining units serve those with critical health needs.

The development emphasizes community and access to the outdoors as a means of supporting the health and well-being of residents. A range of common spaces, including a lounge, community room, computer nook and teaching kitchen, offer many opportunities for connection. An expansive courtyard, private balconies and open-air hallways enhance the livability of the building, cooling spaces with fresh air and providing access to the outdoors.

In partnership with the Veterans Administration and Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, the building is staffed by five service coordinators and case managers who support residents in identifying barriers to holistic health, connecting them to resources in the community, and building skills to live independently.
