Edward II Project
The newly launched Edward II project, a collaboration between Larkin Street Youth Services and Community Housing Partnership, will provide youth ages 18 to 24 with 24 units of safe, clean, and affordable housing at a site in San Francisco’s Marina/Cow Hollow Districts, formerly known as the Edward II Hotel. In addition to housing and case management, services for the young people will be provided both on this site as well as through Larkin Street’s existing medical clinic, education and employment programs.
Where the Edward II project stands now is this:
Community Housing Partnership has completed renovations of Edward II, and young people have already begun moving in to the location. We estimate that all youth will be moved in by mid-December to early January 2015.
It’s important to note that the 24 units of safe, clean, and affordable housing that our youth will be occupying will ultimately be part of the City’s plans to create 400 units of Transition Age Youth housing throughout San Francisco, with the goal of getting our young people off the streets and poised for success. We are deeply grateful to all of the Larkin Street supporters who have and will continue to play a role in achieving this goal.
