(Chicago, Illinois) January 6, 2022 - A Safe Haven Foundation (ASH), an internationally acclaimed top Chicago-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to preventing and ending homelessness, achieved 100% occupancy at the Rauner Family Veterans Apartments by A Safe Haven in Hobart, Indiana. 

This project is a 75 Apartment Units Supportive Housing development. The apartments are dedicated to house low-income, senior, and disabled military veterans who are referred to A Safe Haven by the local US Veteran Administration offices. Onsite services will include supportive housing, individualized case management, peer support services, and onsite professional landscaping and property management services provided by KMA Property Management Company. 

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics to help Veterans find and sustain permanent housing. HUD has approved 75 vouchers for use by veterans for this project. 

In addition to over $20 million in Federal HUD/VA rental housing tax credits, bond volume, and other financing secured from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), former Governor of Illinois and Venture Capitalist, Bruce Rauner and his wife, Diana Rauner, have generously gifted $1,000,000 to A Safe Haven Foundation to support financing and long-term ongoing support. 

To make this development a reality the leadership team at A Safe Haven Foundation has worked with KMA Companies as the real estate development partner and the City of Hobart on this project for almost three years.
