Wayne Densch Center

Wayne Densch Center

Description

Wayne Densch Center previously operated as a transitional housing program and is currently being converted into apartments. The multi-family site will provide high quality, service-enriched affordable and supportive housing; with a focus on serving formerly homeless individuals and families.

The property currently has 64 units; however, over 22% are not in use due to their condition. When the substantial rehabilitation is completed, the property will have 77 fully-rehabbed affordable apartments. The housing will be linked with individualized, voluntary supports; utilizing evidence-based best practices such as Housing First and Permanent Supportive Housing will be implemented. These are proven to stabilize formerly homeless persons with disabilities, improving their self-sufficiency, health and overall quality of life.

The substantial rehabilitation began July 2018.
