Gates Presbyterian Church has partnered with PathStone Corporation, developer of affordable housing, having entered into a 99- year land lease agreement for PathStone to build a two story 45 unit apartment building on land behind the church. CHURCHVIEW COMMONS will consist of 24 – 1 bedroom and 21- 2 bedroom units. We have also partnered with the YWCA of Rochester whose mission is to offer a continuum of supportive housing resources to single women and families who need a safe and secure home during times of crisis or homelessness.

Twenty-three of the apartments will be offered for rent to those individuals earning between $30,000 and $45,000 per year. The remaining twenty-two apartments will be transitional housing for families receiving services of the YWCA. The YWCA will provide on-site case management for those families.

This collaboration between GPC, PathStone, and the YWCA began in November 2018. It is a lengthy, complicated process that has consistently moved forward over the past two years with very little problems. The Town of Gates has been very supportive of this development.

We anticipate breaking ground in the Spring of 2021.

We believe God is providing this opportunity for us to serve our neighbors in our own backyard and to reach out in love to those in need, participating in God’s call to help build a more just society. This is an exciting opportunity for GPC!
