Keystone Opportunity Center Seeks More Housing

Keystone Opportunity Center Development Officer Brenda Oelschlager says the agency is growing its stock of transitional housing for low-income people, largely through re-purposed real estate.

“A lot of our properties are, for example, old church parsonages that the churches are no longer using, and they allow us to have families in there.”

Interfaith Hospitality Networking Director Sue Zomberg says they are still looking for realtors, landlords and others to work with keystone on the Housing First program.

“Many of these apartments are going to be at a level that is affordable for low-income families.  We offer them up to two years.  If they can accomplish their goals and become self-sufficient quicker than that, or move into an apartment that they’ve saved for, we allow them to do that.”

Zomberg says they are up to 22 transitional housing units now, and tenants work at least once a week with Keystone Opportunity Center trained counselors and social workers on budgeting and financial goals, all aimed at making them self-sufficient.
