Pathfinder celebrates opening of group home

Posted: Friday, April 5, 2019

Pathfinder Services recently held an open house at their newly constructed group home located at 452 Cline Street in Huntington.

The over 4,000 square foot, fully accessible home, features eight bedrooms and four baths and is home to seven gentlemen served by Pathfinder Community Supports. The spacious group home on Cline Street was made possible through a grant awarded by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh through their Affordable Housing Program.

PNC Bank, a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, was instrumental in assisting Pathfinder Services through the competitive grant application process to secure the funding. The 2-acre lot on which the home was built was a donation to Pathfinder Services.

Grant funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh also made possible the newly built group home on Jessup Street. Pathfinder Services is currently seeking land to build a third group home thanks to Affordable Housing Program funds being awarded again in 2018.
