Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center

Mixed-use + Supportive Housing


The Ruth Ellis Clairmount Center (REC Center) is a mixed-use development in Detroit’s Piety Hill neighborhood that provides permanent supportive housing for LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness within a larger mixed-use development offering social services, health care, and employment opportunities. At approximately 44,000 SF, the mixed-use building offers 43 studio and one-bedroom apartments, with community amenities such as a resource library and technology center, community kitchen, salon, art studio, and on-site property management. The project has Section 8 project-based rental assistance from MSHDA for 34 units. Eight units are unassisted, and there's one employee unit. The market-rate units are intended to serve a permanent supportive housing population that no longer needs rental assistance but still requires residential supportive services. This allows permanent supportive housing tenants to transition to units without rental assistance as they gain greater independence. Residents will also have onsite space dedicated to supportive services provided by the Developer including offices for case management and group therapy.
