Toledo, OH (June 10, 2021) – Neighborhood Properties, Inc. (NPI), a non-profit, announced Fostoria Junction, a four-county board supportive housing program, will end contract for operations at its Hancock County location effective December 31, 2021, after a careful study of all viable options.
Lynnette Hair, NPI Executive Director
“We appreciate the collaboration with ADAMHS Boards of Hancock, Seneca, Mercer, Paulding Sandusky, Putnam, Van Wert, and Wyandot Counties to bring daily living support to individuals in rural areas who have a mental health or addiction disorder. This was not an easy decision. This decision is consistent with NPI’s mission of providing permanent supportive housing for low-income Lucas County individuals who are struggling with mental illness and addiction. This action will have no impact on NPI’s other services across the Greater Toledo area”.
Fostoria Junction opened its doors in Hancock County, OH, in 2006. The rural counties came together and partnered with NPI to provide 15 apartment units. While most NPI housing is independent living, Fostoria Junction is a supportive housing model, staffed 24/7, 365 days a year. There are currently three full-time and five part-time employees. Employees can apply for other positions at NPI locations in the Greater Toledo area.
Neighborhood Properties, Inc. (NPI) provides permanent supportive housing for homeless persons struggling with mental health illness and addiction who live in Lucas County. NPI owns 500 apartments in 60 locations in the Greater Toledo area and runs and operates a Wellness and Recovery Center, the first of its kind in Northwest Ohio
