The Columbiana County Counseling Center, a nonprofit behavioral healthcare organization, performed the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Hornsby House project on May 6 2015. This project will consist of the development of two new supportive housing properties. The first in Lisbon, Ohio will hold eight one-bedroom apartments on an acre of land. The other in East Liverpool, Ohio will be a duplex.
Both developments will house adults experiencing homelessness and impacted by mental heath challenges. Along with housing, several voluntary supportive services will be offered including psychiatric services, alcohol and drug treatment programs, vocational and employment training and job-site support.
The Counseling Center, with 20 years of experience managing permanent supportive housing, will manage this property. This agency currently owns and operate 39 temporary and permanent housing locations.
This project will help to fulfill the strong need to house a vulnerable population. As one of various funders, CSH played an early role through its project initiation loan to the Counseling Center aimed at funding predevelopment and acquisition costs. Construction is set to be complete by late fall of 2015.
