Quinn Cottages, built in 1998, is a partnership of Mercy Housing and Cottage Housing. Quinn Cottages provides transitional housing for the homeless. The 2.65 acre site consists of 60 small cottage units (including six fully handicapped accessible units). The cottages are clustered in a series of small neighborhoods, each oriented around a shared common space. The perimeter is fenced, monitored with a security system and has controlled front gate access. A central community building houses a computer room, a library/small conference room, a multipurpose room and a community kitchen. Residents participate in a rigorous and comprehensive two-year program from which they graduate. Resident support services are provided by Cottage Housing, whose staff provides comprehensive social services through existing agencies and through services contracts that bring social services on-site.
