Bonita House was a demonstration turn-key project, funded by HUD. to accommodate former mental health patients for up to one year after their release from mental institutions.

The concept of of small houses, instead of one large one, was designed primarily to keep the new structure in scale with the immediate neighborhood and the community-at-large. These two houses, similar in size and material to other houses in the neighborhood, minimize the connotations of a halfway house and furthermore, do not draw attention to themselves.
