Our next affordable housing partnership, Fair Oaks Apartments, will be open this fall! Thank you to Stone House Development, Inc for making this possible.
We are excited to share with you some information about our latest housing partnership, Fair Oaks Apartments. We believe the solution to homelessness is housing. That’s why we not only help families locate existing housing but also work to create new affordable housing. Creating new affordable housing is particularly important in a place like Dane County that suffers from a severe affordable housing shortage. We are currently involved with ten housing programs – and our next housing partnership is in development right now.
The Road Home is excited to partner again with Stone House Development, Inc., a local real estate and consulting firm. Stone House Development has been developing and managing affordable housing for over 20 years and has a long history of commitment to helping families who have experienced homelessness. Most recently, we partnered with them on The Breese Apartments. Similarly to The Breese, Fair Oaks Apartments will provide housing for larger families who have experienced homelessness – the type of affordable housing most difficult to find in Dane County. Eight three-bedroom apartments are set aside as affordable housing, with rent adjusted to the family’s income. The apartment complex includes community space families will be able to use for events and is conveniently located near schools and grocery stores. The Road Home will have an office on site and will provide case management for families in these affordable units. We are hoping to have families move in this August – allowing children to be in their new homes in time for the start of the next school year.
