The Walker Community provides transitional and permanent supportive housing

The Walker Community provides transitional and permanent supportive housing on a 3.5-acre neighborhood located in south Fayetteville.  Funding for the construction of the $2.7 million complex came from a combination of federal grants, a foundation grant, and private contributions. Designed to provide housing for up to 36 individuals, the Walker Community  includes three town-house style apartments and 16 efficiency apartments designed to meet the needs of homeless individuals and families as they move toward self-sufficient, independent living.  

The primary objective of the 7hills transitional housing program is to assist homeless individuals and families in attaining permanent housing, furthering their education, obtaining stable employment with adequate income to support themselves and their family, and creating an adequate support network.  We accomplish this critical mission by providing individuals and families with housing for up to 24 months, during which time our case workers assist them in developing an individualized service plan designed to help them achieve their ultimate goal of becoming socially and financially self-sufficient, contributing members of our community.

The Walker Community also includes 8 studio apartments that assist disabled homeless men and women by offering them a permanent home, supporting their health and wellness needs, and helping them develop a strong support network.
