New Century Village
New Century Village is Housing Hope’s newest affordable housing development, with 44 transitional apartments, 21 of which were created for homeless teen and young mothers. The remaining units are designated to low-income households with children recovering from homelessness.
Housing Hope’s New Century Village gave us the opportunity to turn five separate buildings into one community. We demolished a single-family house and a four-plex and built two new multi-family buildings that encompassed a new centralized playground and provided a new sports court for the village. All the buildings are now accessed off the same driveway, and interior site pedestrian circulation routes have been enhanced. The two new buildings also foster community as they provide outdoor gathering spaces for residents on decks and porches that face the central playground. One of the new buildings provides community rooms five times larger than the existing community room, enabling Housing Hope to offer more educational classes and other services for their tenants.
