Each apartment, pursuant to HUD regulations, will be approximately 800 square feet and contain a kitchen, living/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The tenants will be low-income women with mental illnesses and/or dual diagnoses of mental illness and chemical dependency. Referrals will come from the public housing authority, social service agencies and mental health professionals. At least one unit will be accessible for residents with physical, sight and hearing disabilities. All other units will be adaptable. A full array of supportive services will be offered to the residents. The services will include health and mental health care, group and individual counseling, parenting, education, vocational training, job placement, financial counseling and budgeting, and recreational activities.

Highland Meadows – Single-Family – $29K:

Number of Units: 1

County & Congressional District Served by Project: Randolph County (#2).

In 2010, HCB was approached by a local family to build a home in the Highland Meadows subdivision of Elkins. They requested that the home be built to accommodate the special needs of one of their two children, who is confined to a wheelchair. The family of four had been renting a subsidized two-story townhouse for several years, but it had become increasingly inconvenient as the child grew. They looked extensively for an existing home that would meet their needs as a family but were unable to find one, and thus asked HCB to build the home they needed. The $29,000 award from the Trust Fund was used to help pay for the special accommodations, including a handicapped-accessible bathroom with a roll-in shower and an exterior ram, that the family requested, all while keeping the house affordable. The house was built to the family’s specifications and they moved into it in 2011. The family has been very happy with their home from day one, and it continues to serve their needs just as they had hoped it would.

The Flats – Multifamily – $154.5K:

Number of Units: 6

Counties & Congressional Districts Served by Project: Brooke (#1), Hancock (#1), Ohio (#1), Marshall (#1) and Wetzel (#1) Counties.

The Trust Fund awarded $150,000 to GWCH in June 2010 to fund rehabilitation work on the Gertrude Flats Apartments at 102 Fourteenth Street. At the suggestion of the project architect and with approval of the funding source, the Trust Fund award was set aside and reserved for the purpose of removing and replacing more than 100 windows in the building, completely updating the appearance and functionality of the shelter. This work was completed and the full Trust Fund award was expended as of May 2012. The building, which began providing housing for clients in July 2012, is able to provide up to 18 beds of permanent housing for homeless adults with disabilities. There are currently 10 disabled adults living in the shelter and experienced case management staff work with clients to ensure access to medical treatment and mental health counseling, as well as assist with efforts to look for work or apply for mainstream benefit programs.

One RHP client, “Sandra,” recently left the program for a HUD-subsidized apartment, a highly successful permanent housing outcome. Upon entry to the Residential Housing Program, “Sandra” was a 55-year-old woman with a history of serious physical health ailments, mental health and addiction issues. By working with GWCH case management staff, she achieved stability by engaging with local mental health counselors, maintaining medical appointments and applying for SSDI benefits. “Sandra” also trained for a position with the Senior Aide program and developed a personal budget which allowed her to save more than $1,800 in less than a year, in addition to completing her application for HUD-subsidized housing. Since leaving Residential Housing, she has continued to meet with GWCH staff for ongoing case management supervision and is well on her way to achieving independence.
