Cardinal Capital has always been committed to providing housing and support for vulnerable communities. The Continuum of Care initiative gives us an opportunity to expand our mission even further. As a result, we have begun work with nonprofit providers, state, and local governments with the common goal to create housing, minimize trauma and dislocation, and promote self-sufficiency for those experiencing homelessness.
Pathways Village in Grand Junction, Colorado is our first effort specifically for homeless populations. The project is the result of a unique partnership between Cardinal Capital Management, Inc., Homeward Bound of the Grand Valley, Inc. and Hilltop Community Services, and connects formerly homeless adults and families with case management, mental health treatment, and vocational training.
Pathways Village is a two-phase development plan: Phase 1 consists of a 40-unit permanent, supportive housing project which opened in August 2016; Phase 2 will add a family center offering temporary shelter, counseling space for community partners, a commercial kitchen, and child care space.
