The Phoenix City Council approved a loan of up to $1 million of HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds to UMOM Family Housing to develop the North Mountain Village Apartments, 10825 N. Cave Creek Road, in Sunnyslope.
North Mountain Village will offer new permanent, affordable, service-enriched housing for low-income families, earning between 30- and 60-percent of area median income (AMI).
On-site programs will include case management; substance abuse services; job development assistance; life skills training; GED preparation; and financial management classes, among other services.
“Economic development and revitalization of blighted properties are two of my primary areas of focus this year,” said Vice Mayor Gates. “This project transforms a blighted property and creates good paying construction jobs, while providing a foundation for residents to better their lives and succeed in the Phoenix workforce.”
The community will offer one to three bedroom units with rents ranging from $280 to $589 per month. HOME funding is provided through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
UMOM’s mission is to provide homeless families and individuals with safe shelter, housing and support services to assist them in reaching their greatest potentials. More information can be found at umom.org. Service providers are Helping Hands Housing Services, a subsidiary of UMOM, and Desert Mission Neighborhood Renewal.
