COMMUNITY IMPACT

Grove Street Shelter is the new construction of an approximately 14,000 square foot, 50-bed emergency homeless shelter to be operated by Hope House Mission, which provides shelter and supportive services for up to 210 Low-Income Persons per year in the Project Area. Project is located in a severely distressed and underserved community, characterized by a poverty rate of 37.1% median family income equal to 38.86% AMI, and an unemployment rate of 20.5%, which is 2.47 times the national unemployment rate. The project area also qualifies as a USDA Food Desert and is in a HUB Zone, Enterprise Zone, and federally medically underserved area.

Voices from the Community

Middletown residents face a growing need for emergency housing and it was critical that our community step up to the plate and provide safe emergency shelter for individuals and families facing homelessness. Grove Street Shelter could not have been expanded without the NMTC financing that Finance Fund and their partners brought to the table. This allocation and the new facilities for people in housing crisis will be nothing short of life-saving,.
