Housing Development

We Provide Turn-key Solutions for Your Affordable Housing Needs

Homeless Solutions, Inc. (HSI) has been providing solutions to difficult housing issues since we were founded in 1983 as an emergency men’s shelter.  With a philosophy of “A hand up, not a hand out”, HSI has earned a reputation as one of the most respected housing organizations in the area.  We started by gradually expanding our shelter and social services, then added transitional housing, and finally, included permanent supportive housing with the establishment of our Housing Development (HD) division in 2004.

We Translate Needs into Solutions

Our approach recognizes that each municipality has its own unique needs, interests, and concerns regarding affordable housing.  HD can partner with you at the beginning of the development cycle or join in at a later stage to produce housing that is attractive and cost effective for your town. Our non-profit status reduces project costs, attracts grants and donations, and facilitates government project subsidies.

This translates into savings for your town.

  • Because our focus is on the development of affordable units, partnering with us is a less costly alternative to the “builders’ remedy” approach.
  • HD stands behind all of our rental projects as owner and property manager.
  • For certain projects, we can bring our own equity.

HD can handle or assist the development process in a variety of ways:

  • Concept development (in conjunction with community officials)
  • Site feasibility and acquisition
  • Financing
  • Predevelopment – design and approvals
  • Construction and/or rehabilitation
  • Sales or lease-up
  • Property management

Experience You Can Count On

The staff of Housing Development provides a depth of knowledge in all phases of the affordable housing process – urban planning, design, project management, and finance. Our development team members are selected for their extensive experience in their profession and in our geographic area. They also understand the importance of neighborhood context and green building, and have a passion for our mission.

The success of the HD model is rooted in our interdisciplinary collaboration with the other divisions of HSI. Each project is backed by property maintenance, financial management, fundraising, and case management expertise of the larger organization. Just as important, HSI’s reputation and longevity ensures that you will have a strong partner today and in the future.
