The completion of VanKeuren Square represents the successful and comprehensive collaboration between Housing Visions and the Syracuse VA Medical Center. VanKeuren Square was conceived and designed to provide a full range of services to homeless Veterans and Veterans at risk of being homeless.
The design of the building, with 50 individual one- and two-bedroom fully-furnished apartments and a variety of common gathering areas, offers the residents a supportive environment that both respects individual privacy while simultaneously encouraging community integration and socialization.
VanKeuren Square was designed to create a “one-stop” service to provide housing and supportive services in one building to enable the Veterans to retain their housing and move toward recovery. Two case managers and a social worker on-site help Veterans with substance abuse problems, find employment, get health care and deal with other issues.

This project has received some funding from a participating jurisdiction (local or state government agency) through the HUD HOME Investments Partnerships Program (HOME). In projects with five or more HOME-assisted units, at least 20% of these units must be occupied by families earning 50% or less of area median income (AMI). All other HOME-assisted units must be occupied by families earning 80% or less of AMI, but in practice most are reserved for families earning 60% or less AMI. Maximum monthly rent is capped with a Low HOME Rent for <50% AMI units and a High HOME Rent for the remaining HOME-assisted units. Contact the property directly for the specific dollar amount of these rent caps.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
