“We wanted to develop a program that would help people obtain a significant asset so that we weren’t just ending homelessness for people but actually providing the opportunity for them to climb out of poverty,” Fowler explains. “Owning a house means collateral for a loan, or something to sell and/or an asset to leave to a child or children.” Plus, new construction hasn’t been seen in this neighborhood (which includes numerous abandoned buildings and empty lots) in a while, although CCSS has rehabbed some buildings in the area. The budget for phase one of this project is $1.5 million, and $900,000 has already been committed, including $400,000 from Ford Motor Company.
Homes currently under construction include Plan 915-7, a cozy 310-square foot cottage with an appealing front stoop and a front bump-out with several antique-style paned windows; Plan 915-10, a cute 356-square-foot, shingled bungalow with a neighborly front porch, an open feeling and lots of light; Plan 890-2, a 320-square-foot modern-style cottage with an inviting front porch, an L-shaped kitchenette and clerestory windows for added light; and Plan 915-3, a charming, classic American clapboard cottage with a welcoming front porch, plenty of tall windows and a fireplace.
