At 10:30 a.m. on July 07, the construction of ShelterCare’s Afiya Apartments will officially commence with a groundbreaking ceremony. Officials from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and representatives of Senators Wyden and Merkley will inaugurate this $2.5 million federal investment in 16 apartments for low-income adults, who have been chronically homeless and are diagnosed with a psychiatric disability.
As with all of our residential programs, the Afiya Apartments will help our clients achieve independence and success, by offering supportive one-on-one counseling, job skills training, socialization opportunities, and help in managing their overall health as they progress towards stabilizing their housing. The apartments will be located at our Brethren Housing site in Springfield (1062 Main Street, Springfield).
