Sompasaari transitional apartments

The Sompasaari transitional apartments in Kalasatama provide transitional apartments for clients of disability services in Helsinki.

The Sompasaari transitional apartments are located in Sompasaari in the Kalasatama district. We provide transitional apartments for clients of disability services in Helsinki.

The Sompasaari transitional apartments cooperate with Rudolf Housing Group and the Borgströminmäki transitional apartments. You can apply to become a resident via your designated social worker. Our residents sign a lease agreement with Setlementtiasunnot and are subject to normal lessee obligations.

The transitional apartments of Sompasaari Housing Group are suitable for you if you can manage your everyday activities relatively independently but need regular guidance and support in your everyday life. We will provide you with guidance during support visits at your home or by phone. If needed, our instructors can also help you take care of service matters outside home, such as health care appointments.

We do not have staff present at night.

What is living in the Sompasaari transitional apartments like?   

We create a supported housing service plan for every resident and will list your needs, goals and ways to achieve your goals in your plan together with you.  

Our apartments are located right on the seashore. Services, such as Kalasatama Health and Wellbeing Centre and Redi Shopping Centre, are only a walking distance away from the transitional apartments. The Mustikkamaa outdoor activity area is also located near by.

Kalasatama is a developing city district with plenty of services. If you use public transport, you can reach us by metro and bus. A tram will start operating here in the autumn of 2024.  

The Sompasaari transitional apartments are located in an ordinary apartment building, on a Setlementtiasunnot property. We have 16 roughly 30–40-m2 transitional apartments on four floors.

Each apartment has its own bathroom and kitchen, as well as a balcony or French balcony. The building features a reservable laundry room and a sauna.

The bottom floor of the building features a resident space shared by all residents. The resident space can also be reserved for private use.

The instructors’ office is located on the same floor as the transitional apartments.  

The residents of the Sompasaari transitional apartments get to live the kind of life they want. You can decorate and furnish your apartment as you see fit.   

What is everyday life like with us?   

On weekdays, some of our residents work, take part in work or day activities or study. Some also take part in various hobby activities and clubs.    

We hold a resident café every other week, which all of our residents are welcome to attend. There, you and our other residents can enjoy activities such as chatting and playing games while having coffee.  

With us, you can take part in planning leisure time activities together with the other residents. We attend events and have trips together, among other things.  


We have motivated staff who will take your needs and interests into account. Our aim will be to help you live the kind of life that you want, as independently as possible.
