Talbert House Opens Permanent Supportive Housing Site

Rehabilitated Logan Towers Ready to Welcome Tenants

CINCINNATI – Logan Towers, a Talbert House permanent supportive housing site, will soon welcome tenants into the building at 1817 Logan Street in Over-the-Rhine beginning in July. In partnership with Model Group, the building was rehabilitated and reconfigured into 63 one-bedroom and studio units intended for individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and have a history of mental health or substance use disorders.

In addition to a beautiful new apartment, tenants will have the opportunity to receive case management services to support their independent living. Tenants will also receive a “welcome kit” comprised of linens and housewares to ease their transition and support their path of recovery. Thanks to the generous donations and support of Standard Textile, CORT Furniture Rental, Talbert House Board members and volunteers, the welcome kits will alleviate some of the financial burden and stress that comes with moving into and furnishing a new home.

“Recovery happens one day at a time,” said Neil Tilow, Talbert House President/CEO. “That’s why we want tenants to feel as safe as possible from day one. They’ll be living in a supportive environment with access to high-quality services at every step.”

“Logan Towers is another example of trying to meet the housing needs of our Hamilton County residents,” said Stephanie Summerow Dumas, President of the Hamilton County Commission. “We all know that Affordable Housing is something that is receiving more attention from the County, City and the community. Hamilton County has committed $40 million from the American Rescue Plan for Affordable Housing. I want to extend my appreciation to everyone involved in this project for a job well done as we continue this journey.”

"Logan Towers will serve some of our most vulnerable Ohioans and is an important addition to the affordable housing landscape in Cincinnati," said Guy Ford, OHFA director of legislative affairs. "OHFA is proud to have awarded Logan Towers with more than $7.5 million in federal housing tax credits to bring this important renovation to fruition."

“We are proud to play a role in helping to fund the rehabilitation of Logan Towers through our Affordable Housing Program,” said Andy Howell, President & CEO of Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. “The work that Talbert House is doing to create affordable housing and provide quality care to their clients is making a real difference in our region.”

Logan Towers was made possible through collaboration and funding from Model Group, the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Equal Housing Opportunity, Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Fifth Third Bank, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, Ohio Housing Finance Agency, PCA Architecture and US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
