  • Introducing the new Grant Street Front Porch Supported Housing Garden Community

    Posted on March 6, 2015

    Grant Street Ground Breaking

    On March 6th, Pathfinder Services broke ground on a $700,000 community improvement project consisting of three new supportive housing 4-plex buildings on Friday, March 6th. The new Front Porch Garden Community is located at 1451 Grant Street in Huntington and will be home for 12 individuals served by Pathfinder Community Supports.

    Each home will be approximately 2,000 square feet in size and provides a separate front porch entrance and studio bedroom area for each of four individuals.  Staff support will be provided as needed. The new homes are made possible through a grant from Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis Affordable Housing Program through 1st Source Bank, a member bank of FHLBI. Additional funding is provided by NeighborWorks America and United Way of Huntington.

    Each tenant will have a separate suite that includes a bedroom area, small living area, and fully accessible private bathroom. The tenants in each home will share a common living area, kitchen, laundry room, and a park-like garden setting.  The homes will be a single family, one story accessible ranch style to accommodate tenants’ existing disabilities and those likely to develop as the tenants age in place.  A similar supported housing community has been operating successfully since May of 2014 on Ash Street.

    “We are excited to begin this community improvement project especially given the success of our Ash Street Front Porch Community,” stated John Niederman, President of Pathfinder Services. “Like the Ash Street 4-plex homes, the Grant Street homes have been designed to provide a personal living space for individuals with developmental disabilities that we serve while also giving them the choice to be a part of the supported common space to meet their needs,” continued Niederman. “These three homes are scheduled to open in late 2015 and we are delighted to continue with this innovative approach to supported housing which fosters independence, choice and inclusion while providing on-site support. We are very appreciative of the continued support from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis, 1st Source Bank, NeighborWorks America, United Way and our community partners that make this unique housing opportunity a reality for those we serve.

  • Pathfinder Community Connections Home Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program is Featured on Local News

    Posted on February 11, 2015

    The Pathfinder Community Connections Home Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program was featured on 21 Alive/NBC 33.

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) — You’ve probably been driving past them without giving it a second thought, but the houses behind Pathfinder Community Connections signs make a big difference within the community.

    Pathfinder is a not-for-profit organization in northeast Indiana which helps those with physical and mental disabilities by assisting with job placement and other services.

    But four years ago, as government funds and grant funds became more difficult to get, the group created another division within itself.

    It’s community development program improves neighborhoods by rehabbing vacant houses.

    Leaders with the program say it’s much more than just ‘flipping’ a house because instead of only worrying about cosmetics, the goal is that the house won’t need any major repairs like the roof or furnace for ten years.

    “We try to cover all those things and repair all those things before we put the house back on the market, said community connections director, Jan Baumgartner.

    As a not-for-profit, Pathfinder is often eligible for an exclusive first look at foreclosed properties.

    “We have the opportunity to get those properties before some other investors might see them,” said Baumgartner.

    At its start, the program acquired homes here and there. Now the properties can be found in Wabash, Andrews, Roanoke, Huntington and Fort Wayne.

    Income from selling the houses then goes back into supporting the primary cause.

    Baumgartner adds, “we’re using our own funds to do the project and then when a house sells, we put the money back into the project so that we can expand it.”
