Contra Costa Health will open a new permanent supportive housing facility in San Pablo for homeless adults with disabilities in February.

The 54 micro-units in the facility at 2555 El Portal Drive were made possible by a $16 million grant form the California Homekey program, CCH officials said.

“Shared vision and strong partnerships helped turn a vacant office building into 54 units of permanent supportive housing for previously unhoused individuals and families,” said John Gioia, chair of the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors.

“Thanks to the collaboration between the county, the city of San Pablo, Overaa Construction, and federal, state and local funding, over 50 people experiencing homelessness will have permanent supportive housing to help them thrive and be healthy.”

The project is near grocery stores, transit and other essential services. Each apartment has a bathroom, kitchenette and workspace. Amenities in the complex also include a community room, courtyard, garden and dog park.

CCH officials said there would be staff on site to help residents connect with services and make referrals to healthcare, benefits assistance and behavioral health agencies.

“We know permanent supportive housing is an important solution to homelessness,” said Contra Costa Health CEO Anna Roth. “That is why we redeveloped this site, providing support and stability for people experiencing homelessness in our communities.”

Along with the Homekey award, CCH is using $5.2 million of Measure X funds for the project.

“Homekey continues to be one of California’s most successful efforts to rapidly create housing for people struggling with homelessness,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said. “Through this innovative approach, we have funded over 14,600 homes in communities all across the state.”

This will be the second Homekey facility in Contra Costa County. In 2022, CCH opened Delta Landing, a 172-unit interim housing site in Pittsburg, after receiving a $21.5 million Homekey grant.
