Future Residents & Neighbors
Our multi-income housing is:
Family-friendly housing that is open to anyone.
Anyone can apply for an apartment.
The normal apartment application process is followed and rents are determined by the current rental market.
Multi-income housing is a newer concept for Michigan and has had much success in even wealthier areas of New York and California. Our concept goes further because our subsidized apartments have powerful support services to help residents in subsidized apartments experience upward mobility. Our solution builds dignity.
When we subsidize an apartment for a veteran:
There is an application and an interview process.
Both the veteran (and family if applicable) and SPC must feel that SPC is the right fit for the veteran to get on his or her feet in 2 years.
A strategic life plan is developed with experts, support services are given (some of which neighbors may also take part in) and progress is tracked while providing space for self-determination.
We are partnering with veterans to create their unique pathway to prosperity.
We ask ourselves, how do we help our community thrive? What is a prosperous community? This is why we will offer private membership to our neighbors that include access to our amenities and services. We will run activities and programs that benefit not just residents but the community at large. We will provide unique classes and experiences for youth. We provide jobs and training for good paying jobs. We are collaborators in building a thriving community. Call us crazy but we measure our success based on our ability to help others prosper.
Dear Future Resident
Residents that pay market rate and veterans that have a subsidized apartment have access to all the amenities included in their rent and receive discounts on additional services and perks including automatic discounts on food that we grow in our greenhouses. When you make friends with your neighbors at our resident only events free of charge or open your window and smell the aroma of the garden float up to you, we hope you truly feel home. We cannot wait to have you join our community. We look forward to serving your housing needs, providing an amazing value, and yes, we want to be a part of your quality of life.
