Leaders Look at Columbus Model

Cincinnati Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls will lead a contingent of elected officials and community leaders on a road trip to Columbus on Monday to look at some apartment complexes built for homeless people there.

The group will tour two complexes built by National Church Residences (NCR) that provide permanent, supportive housing to formerly homeless individuals.—-

A similar approach is being proposed in the Queen City by the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Continuum of Care for the Homeless. The Continuum is helping organize the trip, along with Qualls.

Among those scheduled to make the trip are City Council Members, Chris Bortz, Laure Quinlivan and Wendell Young; City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr.; and several homeless advocates and service providers.

They will tour The Commons at Grant and The Commons at Buckingham, two 100-unit projects built by NCR.
