THE PACES FOUNDATION GIFTS OWNERSHIP OF ITS FIRST SPECIAL NEEDS DEVELOPMENT TO VIEW POINT HEALTH

Typically ownership of affordable housing properties, like Clover Bridge, remains with the developer of the property. The Paces Foundation is a nonprofit affordable housing developer and is gifting the equity and transferring ownership of the $3.8 million dollar property funded by HUD HOME and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs to View Point Health. View Point Health helps individuals with special needs challenges achieve their highest level of skill development, independence and health. The site offers 28 one-bedroom units as well as shared community rooms.

HOPE STARTS WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING & SUPPORT COMBINED

Those with special needs in behavioral health areas require total health solutions with integrated care coordination. Without the proper support, this population is at risk of homelessness and chronic crisis. Hope starts with supportive affordable housing where counselors can help them gain employment training and watch for trouble signs of depression or relapse before they escalate and potentially drain hospitals, police, and court systems. The Paces Foundation and its partners hope to spread the word about how special needs housing gives people the step up they need to succeed ultimately benefiting the entire community.
