Willow Housing provides studio and one-bedroom apartments serving formerly homeless veterans and veterans at risk of imminent homelessness. Located on the edge of the VA Palo Alto Healthcare System campus in Menlo Park, Willow Housing provides quality permanent affordable housing in close proximity to services and transportation. A landscaped outdoor patio with raised plant beds and walking paths connects residents to the outdoors directly from the community room. Inside, a gym and computer/TV lounge are nearby, providing the ground floor with ample common areas to promote community-building.
To improve accessibility, grade changes between the indoor and outdoor areas were minimized, in-unit showers have a low threshold, and an elevator is available to access the second floor.

Willow Housing is LEED® Gold certified.
