GRHC-Owned Affordable Housing Complexes

The GRHC currently operates seven low-income housing developments—two designed for families with children and five retirement communities tailored to meet the housing and supportive needs of older and disabled adults.

Hope Community
Rapid Re‑Housing Program

We also administer Hope Community, a rapid re‑housing program that serves homeless mothers and their children. Referrals to this program are made through The Salvation Army.

Hope Community Transitional Housing Program Service Center
The Hope Community Service Center features housing units as well as resident meeting space and administrative offices.

Our facilities include a Service Center that features 12 private apartments, each equipped with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedrooms appropriate to the family’s size. As residents gain the skills they need to progress toward independent living, they receive a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher that empowers them to find private rental housing in our community. Hope Community employs on-site case managers to help link program participants with health care and child care, job training programs, transportation and many other needed resources.

Hope Community receives a federal Supportive Housing Grant that is administered through the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness. Click Privacy Notice to read about the confidentiality and informational rights of residents served through this program.

 

 

 

Family Developments

Campau Commons Apartments and Creston Plaza Apartments offer one- to four-bedroom units to low‑income households, including families, senior citizens and the disabled. Monthly rents are based on each tenant’s ability to pay and are no more than 30 percent of a household’s adjusted monthly income. Both developments offer easy access to transportation, schools, parks and other amenities important to families that include children.

The GRHC also administers a Scattered Sites Program that offers duplex units and a limited number of single-family, rent-to-own homes to eligible low-income households.

While the GRHC is currently accepting new applicants to our family developments, applicants should be aware that there is a significant wait to rent due to a lengthy existing waiting list. The timeframe from application to rental for Campau Commons or Creston Plaza ranges from two to seven years depending on the unit size required (longest wait is for a one‑bedroom unit, shortest is for a three- or four‑bedroom unit). The wait to rent through our Scattered Sites Program is currently about four years.

Adams Park Apartments

Adams Park Apartments
Adams Park Apartments is a 188-unit facility that serves disabled and older adults.
Fact Sheet

Adams Park Apartments is a retirement development designed specifically to meet the needs of disabled adults. While Adams Park also serves non-disabled seniors ages 62 and older, this facility partners with the mental health agency Network 180 to offer not only affordable housing but also supportive services to residents coping with a mental health or substance abuse problem that puts them at risk for homelessness. Adams Park tenants are assisted by a full-time GRHC Resident Services Specialist as well as two full-time staff employed by Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services.

Due to the specialized services offered at this development, there is currently a wait of about three years for applicants to Adams Park Apartments who are not referred through Network 180.
