American Family Housing’s second foray into building with recycled shipping containers

Our most visible accomplishment came when we converted surplus shipping containers into housing for homeless veterans. We build upon this innovative model today in South Los Angeles where we are opening 54 new supportive units in 2022 in the LA Promise Zone. This collaboration with our good friends at Clifford Beers Housing will include business incubator space on the ground level, gardens on the rooftops, and a redefined urban space, thanks to the conversion of the adjacent street into greenspace made possible by special funding from the Annenberg Foundation.
