DESC’s vision is to improve equity and social justice by improving health care in our community. Many people who experience homelessness have serious mental health conditions like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. Health care systems don’t offer these individuals what they need.
It’s time for health care to be accessible for those who need it most. With the clinic at Hobson Place, DESC and Harborview Medical Center will establish the first local full-scale health care clinic specifically designed to meet the complex needs of people living with disabilities who have experienced the longest periods of homelessness. By better addressing the health care needs of this group, the new clinic will result in a healthier community for everyone.
Hobson Place will also be a supportive housing building, with 177 studio units in total. The clinic at Hobson Place will serve residents of the supportive housing and the broader community, and create new employment opportunities in the neighborhood.
The first phase of the project was built on the north portion of the parcel, providing 85 affordable studio apartments with supportive services and indoor/outdoor community spaces for individuals who are disabled and formerly homeless. These homes opened on October 7, 2020.
