After lengthy discussion and deliberation, the Cornerstone Community Outreach (CCO) Board of Directors has decided to hand over ownership of Leland House to Park Inc. CCO made this decision so that employees and resources could be focused on our homeless shelter programs, which provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, and supportive services, to nearly 350 individuals and families each day.
Park Inc. has a history of providing affordable housing. Their website states, “Park Inc. is a real estate investment firm that specializes in the acquisition and long-term ownership of residential properties and development management. Our portfolio includes both conventional and affordable housing.” For this reason, Park Inc. was chosen to continue housing families in affordable housing units at the Leland House location.
