Transitional Housing

A Theraputic Comunity

Treating Addiction, Mental Illness & Homelessness

About Us

Benilde Hall began providing transitional housing and substance abuse treatment to indigent homeless men in 1993. Since its inception, nearly 3000 men have received housing and treatment.

In 2001 due to the community needs, Benilde Hall more than doubled their capacity by moving into the present location that houses 65 men. In  2006, Benilde Hall opened Matt Talbot, a 12 unit permanent housing apartment building for men who successfully completed the Benilde Hall program.
