The Haven for Hope project is a groundbreaking social service center in San Antonio, Texas. Haven for Hope seeks to revolutionize treatment for homelessness by centralizing every relevant social service within a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary campus.
For the homeless, barriers to entering mainstream society are numerous and vary from person to person. For those struggling with substance abuse or emotional disabilities, Haven offers mental health and drug treatment. Rather than further burdening overtaxed urban emergency rooms, the homeless are able to visit Haven’s medical clinic for preventative care, immunizations, dentistry, vision, and podiatry. Homeless families present unique demands for concerned caregivers; Haven’s campus features a childcare center, after-school programming, and family counseling. Employment training completes the picture.
Crescent Growth Capital enabled this pioneering facility by structuring a $40 million New Markets Tax Credit qualified equity investment for the new campus, sited within a highly-distressed census tract with a nearly 44% poverty rate and 14.5% unemployment.
