Journey Home Breaks Ground in Cañon City, Colorado

On Thursday, July 20th, 2017, Cardinal Capital joined local, state, federal officials, investment and development partners to celebrate the groundbreaking of Journey Home, a 30-unit permanent supportive housing project in Cañon City, Colorado.

Combining housing with access to support services, the 3-story structure under construction at 250 Justice Center Road will connect formerly homeless adults and families with case management, mental health treatment and vocational training.

Journey Home is the result of a unique partnership between Loaves & Fishes Ministries of Fremont County and Cardinal Capital. Part of a statewide effort to strengthen the continuum of services available to Colorado's vulnerable homeless population, Journey Home's housing-first approach helps those in crisis address employment, health concerns, substance use, and other issues that may have been neglected in the day-to-day struggle to survive on the streets.

Financed with equity raised from Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits awarded by Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, and 30 Project-based Housing Choice Vouchers provided by Colorado Department of Local Affairs' Division of Housing and administered by the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments, occupancy of all 30 units will be restricted to households with annual incomes of less than 50% of area median income. However, the income of the typical resident will be below the poverty line.

The development and construction of Journey Home is lead by Cardinal Capital and the project is expected to be complete in June 2018.

Construction has been underway in the historic Germania Building since last summer. Cardinal Capital, Vangard Group, LLC and Endeavor Corp. partnered to redevelop this historic downtown building. Germania has been a Milwaukee landmark since it opened in 1896. It has been on the Historic Preservation list since 1983. Its renovation has brought this historic gem back to life as a mixed income, mixed use building in the center of Milwaukee. There are 46 market rate apartments, and 44 tax credit apartments available in addition to vibrant, first floor commercial and office space.

The renovation of this historic gem has captured the attention of many including Tom Daykin at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
