Manufactured Home Cooperative Program
PathStone works with owners and residents of manufactured home communities (mobile home parks) to preserve this critical source of affordable homeownership opportunities for primarily lower income households. We provide training and access to financing for groups of residents to enable them to purchase and improve their community and operate it as a limited equity co-op.
PathStone offers housing counseling in locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Puerto Rico. Services offered are pre and post home purchase education and counseling, rental counseling for tenants, landlord education as well as mortgage delinquency and default resolution counseling. Through one-on-one counseling and education, you will gain life-long financial management skills including establishing and maintaining a budget, understanding credit, debt management and much more.

Section 8 Housing Choice Program
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program established by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development enables the elderly, disabled, and very-low income individuals and families to obtain and reside in decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing. Program participants must meet low-income guidelines established for county of residence, and have the freedom to choose housing that will meet all program requirements while remaining affordable. PathStone administers over 5,500 vouchers annually with six counties in New York State: Orange, Dutchess, Sullivan, Genesee, Orleans and Yates.
