Spotlight on Collaborations
Triple C brings affordable housing coupled with support services, and economic enterprise into local neighborhoods. Triple C has successfully identified ways to create physical and social environments that enhance the overall health for those we serve, addressing housing, healthcare, transportation, employment, education and financial literacy. It is through partnerships with the public and private sectors, such as collaborations with Pennrose and Rutgers, School of Social Work and the Integrated Employment Institute that Triple C draws on the experts in the field to equip us with state of the art development and evidenced based best practices in service delivery.
Triple C’s partnership with Pennrose will result in the expansion of affordable housing opportunities for homeless veterans and families, with a set aside of 44 units in 172 units of luxury apartments. Triple C’s onsite supportive services will provide all residents general support and case management services to maximize overall quality of life.
Triple C’s partnership with Rutgers leverages expert resources to equip team members with research, training, and knowledge exchange so that the services are top notch, and incorporate best practices.
Property in Development
Pennrose Properties, LLC (Pennrose) and Triple C, are undertaking the redevelopment of a portion of Camp Kilmer in Edison, New Jersey into 172 units of new construction affordable rental housing for families, veterans, and the formerly homeless. Pennrose was recently awarded Low-Income Housing Tax Credits for the development of Camp Kilmer Phase A. Camp Kilmer Phase A will consist of 86 units. Twenty-five percent of the units in the development will be targeted to homeless and another twenty-five percent of the units will be targeted to veterans. The redevelopment of Camp Kilmer is a key component of the Township’s affordable housing plan. Homeless and veteran’s-focused supportive services will be provided on site by Triple C. Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018 with completion in the first quarter of 2019, and full occupancy achieved in the fall of 2019. When completed, the new development will be professionally managed by Pennrose Management Company, with services provided by Triple C Housing.

Why We Do What We Do:
The current economic climate and scores of individuals and families experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity magnifies our mission to extend our reach.
- Families comprise 41% of America’s Homeless; of the remaining 59%, 23-40% are veterans and 25% are persons diagnosed with a mental illness.
- Mental illness affects 60 million adults in the United States. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 4 people are affected by a mental health or brain disorder. The World Health Organization is warning that depression is set to become the main cause of disability and second leading health problem by 2020.
- The lack of affordable housing is rated third highest (43%) behind mental illness, for singles, and a staggering 87% for families, as the most common cause of homelessness.
- Studies show that poor mental health and psychological distress are directly linked to poverty. Poverty, acting through economic stressors such as unemployment and lack of affordable housing, is more likely to precede mental illness than the reverse.
