About Us


Serna Village

Cottage Housing, Inc. partners with Mercy Housing California to operate Serna Village. The development site consists of 83 one-to-four bedroom apartments, with a centrally located Community Center, kitchen and a youth program, SKYLAB.

Serna Village is a permanent supportive housing program for homeless families. The facility opened in 2002 to provide housing accommodations to 40 families. The program expanded in 2006 to its current 83 apartments.

Serna Village strives to be a clean and sober community focused on healthy growth and commitment to personal wellness. Participants are encouraged to work closely with our staff on designing and adhering to their own personal development plan, and to volunteer in both the Serna Village and outside communities.

Using the Resiliency Model, which promotes personal development and growth, out intervention strategy is strength-based, peer supported and participant driven.
