Housing Visions Consultants
Oval Wood Dish Factory

$250,000 Predevelopment Loan

Housing Visions Consultants, based in Syracuse, develops, constructs, and manages real estate projects that revitalize communities. This loan will help them convert a 110,000-square-foot vacant factory into mixed-income housing and business use. The site was once home to the Oval Wood Dish company, which manufactured bowls, clothespins, bowling pins, tongue depressors, popsicle sticks, and the popular wooden spoons that came with cups of ice cream. The company moved to Tupper Lake in 1917 and closed in 1964.  Since 2015, the Leviticus Fund has made lending commitments of $5.3 million to Housing Visions, creating or preserving 480 affordable or supportive units to help people in Central New York and the North Country.

Financial Statements for the Years Ended December 31, 2021 and 2020



Executive Director, Greg Maher (left) and Lending Associate, Jelani Jones (right) are pictured here with Kevin O’Connor, RUPCO’s CEO. Leviticus counts RUPCO as a strong partner in New York’s Hudson Valley and has provided financing support to efforts like the Kirkland Hotel and The Metro in Kingston, as well as scattered-site affordable housing in Newburgh.


The Leviticus Fund welcomes donations of any size, which increase our lending capacity and allow our donors to give back to the communities where they live and work.

Learn More About Giving to Leviticus Fund

Throughout the year, the Leviticus Fund works with nonprofit developers, funders, and public officials to improve systems that serve our most vulnerable neighbors. 

Our individual supporters empower the Leviticus Fund to further their values in high poverty communities and with individuals and families in need. When you make a gift to Leviticus in any amount, we put it to work with partners like The Bridge. 

In 2018, the Leviticus Fund made a $3.28 million acquisition loan for property at 3500 Park Avenue in the Bronx. This fall, we helped cut the ribbon on a state-of-the-art, energy-efficient building that provides 46 affordable units to low-income families and seniors, as well as 69 furnished studio apartments to homeless veterans, homeless seniors with disabilities, and chronically homeless adults with mental illness.

At the Leviticus Fund, we finance buildings, but we invest in communities. 

We thank you for your support.
