Housing Opportunities
In the 1990’s, a lack of available housing for individuals with extremely low income levels was prevalent. Our members, staff and board of directors worked together to create a solution to help fill this crucial   need. Over the next 20 years, the plan resulted in Willow Park I and II  and Chestnut Park I and II Apartments. These apartments are nestled in a quaint residential neighborhood, providing homes for 48 people.

The funding used to build the apartments was available through HUD Section 811 Capital Advance funding. The Section 811 program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by subsidizing rental housing opportunities which provide access to appropriate supportive services.

It is our housing program's vision: “That all individuals with a mental illness have real opportunities to live in safe, quality and affordable housing.”

It is our housing program's mission: “To seize real opportunities with the intent of offering safe, affordable and quality housing to persons living with mental illness."

There are various opportunities to meet neighbors. Activities are voluntary; you may choose how many and how often you take advantage of the activities. A community room located in each apartment building is available for all residents. The community room provides an opportunity for residents to socialize or meet friends in a common area with a friendly environment. Also available are wellness activities along with a peaceful and attractive green area, walking trails and a gazebo. 

"I’ve gotten use to living in my community and having my LC family close by. We’re all within walking distance of each other, yet we have our own space too. We have our monthly gatherings; such as potlucks, meetings and social activities with our neighbors. It is nice to look out my window and know I am not alone!”

“I enjoy the freedom and independence my apartment allows me to have. I do know that if I need assistance, it is available. I am also grateful I get to live like any normal person in society and live in a community area where I can be as sociable as I want and need.”
