About Providence House

Welcome to Providence House Oakland, a diverse and vibrant apartment community in the Uptown neighborhood. Our 34 one-bedroom and 6 two-bedroom apartments were designed and built especially for people on fixed incomes living with HIV/AIDS and other disabilities. Providence House is the largest single provider of housing for adults living with HIV/AIDS in Alameda County and is closely aligned with the network of agencies and organizations providing services to those individuals.

Founded in 1991, Providence House is a well-designed, beautifully maintained, supportive housing program founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services.

Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities

Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's current Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program or legacy Section 202 program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one adult member with a disability. Tenants pay rent based on household income. This rent is usually the highest of the following three amounts: either 30% adjusted monthly income, or 10% unadjusted monthly income, or, if receiving welfare assistance, the housing costs portion of this assistance.

You can usually make up to 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) to be eligible for a HUD-Assisted Housing unit, but income qualification tiers for this community may be different due to various policies.
