Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center

The Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center is the site of the Centers permanent supportive housing (PSH) program. The 43-unit mixed-used housing development is a collaboration between the Ruth Ellis Center and Full Circle Communities, a non-profit developer out of Chicago. The goal of this program is to provide long-term housing stability to individuals experiencing chronic homelessness, in a setting that is intentionally inclusive of LGBTQ identities. For transgender women of color especially, housing resources that affirm gender identity is critical to ensuring safety and wellbeing.

While the Ruth Ellis Center specializes in providing trauma-informed services for LGBTQ youth and young adults, the PSH program will serve any individual referred through the Detroit Continuum of Care. The Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center will serve as an example of how programs can meet the needs of a community, while also honoring the diverse experiences and identities of each individual.
