About the Project
Florence House is an innovative Housing First project that provides homeless women with stable, affordable housing. The partnership between Avesta Housing and Preble Street that made this project possible demonstrates how a tight partnership with local social service agencies can help people meet their basic needs in previously unattainable ways.
Florence House consists of 25 efficiency apartments, 15 safe-haven beds, and 10-25 emergency shelter beds. This comunity was inspired by the success of Logan Place, the original Housing First model created by Avesta Housing and Preble Street.
Housing First works because it removes barriers, builds trust, and creates community.
