Completed Projects

Walter Reed Veteran Apartments

The HELP Walter Reed Apartments are a $18MM rehab and adaptive reuse of a building located on the former Walter Reed Medical Campus in Washington, DC. This project, completed in 2019, created 77 permanent supportive housing units for chronically homeless veterans. With long-term housing stability as the goal, the new design incorporated a social services wing ensuring residents have ready access to clinicians and case managers. HELP Walter Reed Apartments has won multiple awards, including the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developer’s Large Tax Credit 2020 Project of the Year and the National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies 2020 Project of the Year.

Perry Point Veteran Village

Perry Point Veteran Village is a $23MM historic renovation and new construction of single-family houses. Located on the Perry Point Veterans Administration Hospital grounds in Perryville, MD, it was completed in 2018. The development created 75 units of housing for homeless veterans and is supported with a project-based HUD-VASH contract. A second phase of 77 units will close financing and begin construction in late 2023. HELP Perry Point has won multiple awards, including the Affordable Housing Finance Magazine Supportive Housing Project of the Year.

Crotona Pride House

The Crotona Pride House is a $38MM purpose-built new construction complex completed in 2021. Comprised of 84 affordable senior units with an LGBTQ+ preference, the design incorporates a ground floor senior center which is operated by a LGBTQ+ development partner, SAGE USA. Open to the community, the senior center anchors the building in the neighborhood and provides resources to both residents and others in need of assistance.

Completed and fully leased in 2022, this adaptive reuse project offers 55 apartments for senior veterans with 14 units reserved for homeless veterans.
