The Way Home provides affordable housing solutions to provide for our most at-risk residents. This includes transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, veterans housing, and affordable rental units. The program also includes our Housing Assistance Fund.
THE WAY HOME HAS A VARIETY OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPTIONS TO HELP THOSE IN NEED
Transitional and Special Needs Housing
Above our Housing Resource center, The Way Home provides seven units of transitional supportive housing for homeless children and their care-givers.
Permanent Supportive Housing
Spruce Keys Family Housing provides 3-4 bedroom apartments for large families. The price and age of Manchester’s existing housing stock put large low-income families at risk of homelessness or lead poisoning. Built in2010, Spruce Keys Family Housing begins to meet that need. Its location on The Way Home’s campus also allows residents access to our full range of supportive services.
Thanks to a HUD Samaritan Initiative Grant, The Way Home also provides 9 units of permanent housing for chronically homeless individuals with disabilities. That housing is provided in conjunction with The Way Home’s Steps to Success coaching.
Completed in September of 2002, Laurel Keys opened its doors and houses six formerly homeless disabled veterans. Veterans are increasing among the homeless in need of supportive housing. Recognizing these barriers to independence, The Way Home focuses on building a relationship of trust and mutual respect.
Affordable Rental Housing Units
The Way Home owns and manages 9 units of affordable housing in Allenstown, New Hampshire.
Housing Assistance Fund-Security Deposit Loans
Since opening our doors in 1988, our housing assistance fund has leveraged over $2 million in security deposit guarantees to help more than 4,500 households secure homes. We work in partnership with Manchester’s Community Improvement Program and the NH Bureau of Homeless and Housing Services. In addition to our loan programs, we have a fund for homeless prevention grant.
Security Deposit Guarantee: In 1993, The Way Home’s Security Deposit Guarantee became the model for State Legislation, creating the State of New Hampshire Housing Security Guarantee Program. While the landlord is guaranteed the security deposit, the tenant is helped to make budgeted monthly payments.
Homeless Housing Revolving Access Loan Fund: In 2008, The Way Home became a local administrator for a new initiative to help homeless persons secure rental housing.
