75-Unit Veteran Housing Project Ready to Start

A Safe Haven Foundation announced the closing on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development apartment project called The Rauner Family Veteran Apartments by A Safe Haven Foundation.

It is a 75-unit Supportive Housing development in Hobart, IN. The apartments will be made available to low income, senior and disabled military veterans who are referred to A Safe Haven by the local Veterans Clinic and Jesse Brown VA.   Onsite services are supported by the US Department of Veterans Administration to cover the costs of supportive housing, individualized case management and peer support services.   A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for next month.

In addition to over $20 million in Federal HUD/VA rental housing tax credits, bond volume and other financing secured from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), former Governor of Illinois and Venture Capitalist, Bruce Rauner and his wife, Diana Rauner, have generously gifted $1,000,000 to A Safe Haven Foundation to support financing and long-term ongoing support.

To make this development a reality the leadership team at A Safe Haven Foundation has worked with KMA Companies as the development partner and the City of Hobart on this project for almost three years.

The Rauner Family Veteran Apartments by A Safe haven Foundation is scheduled to open in Spring of 2021.  The 75 apartments will showcase fully furnished apartments, a flexible meeting space/community room, exercise room, laundry room, bike storage and a beautifully, professionally landscaped outdoor patio courtyard, the US Flag and a Flag from every branch of the military. The walkway to the main entrance will feature a Bronze Star monument to Michael J. Rowland, a decorated Korean War Veteran and father of A Safe Haven Co-Founder and US Army Veteran Brian M. Rowland.
