VMC's housing development, Minvilla Manor, accepts project based vouchers which insures a high level of occupancy. The 57 apartments are each inhabited by a former chronically homeless and disabled individual. Minvilla is unique in that it offers case management services on-site, and twenty-four hour staffing is in place as well. This ensures a high level of security for the residents. Social activities are also provided. The goal is for each tenant to reach his or her highest level of self-sufficiency. It should be noted that Minvilla Manor has won numerous awards for historic preservation.
