Veteran's Permanent Supportive Housing Redevelopment
Department of Veterans Affairs Carl Vinson VA Medical Center
Freedom's Path at Dublin was selected by Georgia DCA for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) in 2020. After a long, hard road, we have pulled together all of the necessary capital and have closed on all financing. Construction began on October 3, 2022. We are eager to complete this much needed development for our United States military Veterans.

WHAT'S TO COME
FREEDOM'S PATH DUBLIN
This video was recorded at Freedom's Path Hines, Illinois. The Veterans and their stories are real. Freedom's Path is a proven way to reduce the number of homeless Veterans while restoring them back to their rightful place of honor. The Freedom's Path Development Team is eager to bring Freedom's Path Dublin, Georgia to our United States Military Veterans!
This project includes two components, the first of which is the adaptive re-use and historic renovation of the two existing buildings to generate 44 (22 studio and 22 one bedroom) units with a leasing preference being provided to Veterans who are homeless, near homeless, or disabled, who meet the income guidelines of the program and a six unit new construction building. The two bedroom units are being developed to serve small households, which may include female Veterans or two parent households with a child. With more women in the military, this has become an emerging issue in terms of housing Veterans with income or disability issues.

THE 2022 ANNUAL HOMELESS ASSESSMENT REPORT (AHAR) TO CONGRESS
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases the Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress (AHAR) in two parts. Part 1 provides Point-inTime (PIT) estimates, offering a snapshot of homelessness—both sheltered and unsheltered— on a single night. The one-night counts are conducted during the last 10 days of January each year. The PIT counts also provide an estimate of the number of people experiencing homelessness within particular homeless populations, such as people with chronic patterns of homelessness and veterans experiencing homelessness.
