Featured Property: The Commons at Madison

  • The Commons at Madison

The Commons at Madison is a partnership between the three premier mental health and drug addiction service providers in Youngstown: Compass & Community Services, Meridian Community Care and Help Hotline Crisis Center. Along with the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority, this project has brought 40 new-construction, one-bedroom permanent supportive housing units to the Youngstown market. The project is accessible to many local amenities, and on-site transportation is provided by the sponsors for needs that are not within walking distance. The project met OHFA policy goals by supporting permanent supportive housing for the homeless, valuing development teams that demonstrate collaboration in providing services and valuing properties that provide rental subsidy for the residents. The project was selected as an innovative housing submission for its comprehensive service provision and financial leveraging. The Commons at Madison received local and legislative support and was selected as the highest priority of the Mahoning County Continuum of Care.
