Supportive housing is permanent affordable housing rented to people with special needs who are linked to individualized social services. Supportive housing services enable residents with special needs to manage their illness and contribute to the surrounding community. Resident services offered at Holt Avenue include primary case management and mental health and chemical dependency counseling services; individual and group programming, such as goal setting, physical fitness, basic life skills, budgeting, addiction education, job preparation, family reconciliation and leisure activities; and linkage to medical, dental, legal, and employment services and entitlements. Services are provided by the Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Board of Franklin County system agencies.
CHN owns and manages Holt Avenue. An onsite resident manager provides general building and resident oversight. CHN will continue to protect its investment in this property through planned quality maintenance and attractive landscaping.
Community Housing Network and its partners would like to thank the City of Columbus HOME program and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (Section 811) for their support of this project.
