PATH Ventures Housing Development and Services
Affordable and Supportive Housing Development
PATH Ventures is one of the few organizations in the state that combines the knowledge, skill and experience to both create supportive housing developments, and also provide the services that are integral to support its tenants.
Led by a senior management team with over 50 years of combined experience in affordable housing development, along with the knowledge and skill of leaders from PATH, one of the largest and most effective homeless services organizations in the region, PATH Ventures has the capacity to create and operate high quality affordable and supportive housing. This capacity is built upon the experience of PATH Ventures’ nearly 20 real estate, finance, and asset management team members.
Since December 2021, PATH Ventures has completed 19 affordable and supportive housing communities totaling 1,132 homes and has 17 additional developments (1,359 homes) in construction or in pre-development. PV has experience working with a range of financing sources from city, county, state lenders, as well as private funders.
With its special relationship with PATH, PATH Ventures has access to highly specialized and experienced clinical support services that results in long-term stability for its tenants. These services include intensive case management, links to health care, mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, life skills workshops, employment assistance, and resources for education and training.
We use an integrated care approach that includes accessible and Housing First strategies, coupled with culturally appropriate, recovery-oriented health services designed to reduce barriers to housing stability. Our programs support residents’ independence and ability to live in the least restrictive environment for as long as possible. In order to provide this level of individualized, client-centered, supportive services, case managers provide on-site services, as well as coordinate residents’ access to any off-site community-based health or social services needed to gain stability. All services emphasize enhancing the residents’ quality of life and include community building activities and events to help residents develop a local support network and increase self-sufficiency skills. Services are delivered by full-time, on-site case managers and resident service coordinators.
On-site service staff creatively engage all residents, often on a daily basis, to provide information about available services. Because fostering trusting relationships with residents is crucial to our work, case managers spend one-on-one time with residents each week focused on building rapport, making assessments, goal planning, and establishing housing stability. As residents actively engage in services, increase their ability to coordinate their own care, and become stable in their home, appointments with case managers may decrease. This gives residents opportunities to practice newly learned skills, build confidence, and improve self-sufficiency. Our case management services are flexible and individualized to each resident.
