Crossroads Village is a former 200 unit-motel in north Fresno, California, converted to permanent housing for individuals and families at risk of homelessness, via a $15.3 million California Department of Housing and Community Development Project Homekey grant. Project Homekey enables a rapid renovation to immediately house those who are in need of shelter and experiencing effects of Covid-19. 


This eight building, two-story project will initially comprise studios and one bedrooms, and a second rehab phase will provide a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, along with community space.  The units will be made affordable through operating subsidies provided by the Fresno County Department of Social Services and services will be offered on site by Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health.    


The project will continue to be rehabbed utilizing state No Place Like Home funds, 4% Low Income Tax Credits and bonds and hard debt..  The project has strong local support and is a partnership between UPholdings, Fresno County, non-profit corporation Housing on Merit, and local developer and property manager RH Community  Builders.  This two-phased, approximately $45 million project undergoes its first phase of renovation as of December 2020 and will commence construction on its second phase in 2022.
