CINCINNATI – National Church Residences recently hosted a celebration for the grand opening of the Commons at South Cumminsville, a new $11.5 million permanent supportive housing community providing high-quality, affordable housing for the formerly homeless, veterans and/or disabled individuals. The 80 one-bedroom units are semi-furnished and include programming and services to help residents build self-sufficiency.
On-site supportive services (provided by Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services) include social workers, vocational and educational instruction, as well as social activities. Among the amenities are a laundry room, classroom, fitness center, medical home suite, meeting room and a resource center with computer and internet access. The property is located at 3775 Herron Avenue in the South Cumminsville neighborhood of Cincinnati.
“For nearly two decades, National Church Residences has served formerly homeless and disabled individuals across Ohio and in Georgia,” said Mark Ricketts, president and chief executive officer of National Church Residences. “Our permanent supportive housing model is designed to empower residents of the Commons at South Cumminsville to become healthy, stable members of the community by improving their physical, mental and financial health. We couldn’t achieve those objectives without the help of key partners here in Cincinnati. In fact, this exceptional collaboration has led to the property receiving one of only six 2021 Secretary’s Awards for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships – awarded by HUD and the Council on Foundations.”
Partnering with National Church Residences were a local community development corporation, Working in Neighborhoods, and neighborhood sponsor South Cumminsville Community Council. Financial partners that made this project possible included the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, KeyBank, HOME Funds from City of Cincinnati, Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority, The Home Depot Foundation and Strategies to End Homelessness.
“On behalf of Working In Neighborhoods, I’d like to share how excited we are that National Church Residences chose to invest in the South Cumminsville community,” said Sister Barbara Busch, executive director of Working in Neighborhoods. “Providing a safe, affordable and desirable living environment, the residents of the Commons at South Cumminsville will be able to focus on achieving their personal goals related to self-sufficiency.”
National Church Residences owns and operates seven permanent supportive housing communities in Ohio, serving 655 residents. This is the organization’s first permanent supportive housing community in Cincinnati.
