Canon Kip

Canon Kip Community House is a 103-unit permanent supportive housing site for formerly homeless adults (which includes veterans, seniors, and those with chronic disabilities) and is home to the Canon Kip Senior Center. Constructed in 1994, Canon Kip was the first permanent supportive housing building of its kind in the South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood of San Francisco. Like all of ECS's supportive housing sites, Canon Kip's dedicated team of case managers and clinicians affords residents the support they need to retain their housing while building community, and enables them to sustain increasingly healthy and independent lives.

The property completed a tax credit resyndication in 2018, which included a $12.5M occupied rehab of the site. Upgraded amenities from the rehab include adding cooking facilities in all units, giving more units private bathrooms, redesign of community spaces, offices, and the senior center.
