Hamlin Hotel building

HomeRise provides support services utilizing our Case Management Model which strategically provides individualized services to the residents in an effort to increase resident self-sufficiency.


The property consists of 67 units, most have shared bathrooms and some have private bathrooms. There is a community kitchen located on each floor. Other amenities include a community room, Resident Services offices, and a laundry room. As of December 2019, the building is currently undergoing a complete occupied rehab which will revitalize the entire building with new community spaces, new elevator, laundry room, community kitchens, plumbing, and wiring, updating each residents unit with cabinetry, flooring, windows and lighting. Once complete, the building will meet current seismic code.


Vacant during the 1970’s, the Hamlin was reoccupied and upgraded after being transferred to nonprofit ownership in the 1980’s. It was a part of the nation’s first agreement requiring tourist hotel developers to provide affordable housing. The 1978 remake of the movie, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, was filmed at the Hamlin Hotel, as was the 1981 film, Street Music.
