A complete renovation of The Joyce will provide Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for people who have been homeless, who are vulnerable, and who need both subsidized housing and services to be successful. The Joyce will be dedicated fully to residents who need this combination of intensive services and deeply affordable rents. A rich array of voluntary supportive services will be offered onsite through a collaboration of supportive service providers: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA), and Cascade AIDS Project. The ground floor will be reconfigured with community-serving spaces including a clinic room, offices for service providers, a community room, mail and laundry areas, and resident lobby. Above will be 3 stories of SRO-style units and restrooms.
