Councilmember Curren Price Breaks Ground on Two New Housing Developments Providing 112 Homes for Homeless Transition-Age Youth, Veterans and Families

On May 18, Councilman Curren Price, joined partners the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), New Economics for Women, and Amity Foundation to break-ground on Ruth Teague Homes and Marcella Gardens at 67th and 68th & Main Street, in the heart of District 9. 

The two new affordable and permanent supportive housing developments will bring 112 new homes to house chronically homeless transition-age youth, veterans, adults and families. Once completed, all units will come with basic furnishings to eliminate start-up costs to the newly housed residents.

Both developments will offer large outdoor community spaces, indoor lounge areas, laundry facilities, onsite case management, individual client care/coordination planning (CCCP), mental health services, independent living training, medication services, social/recreational activities, legal services and physical healthcare.

All 60 units in Marcella Gardens will be permanent supportive care for residents with unique needs. CRCD will provide on-site case management services to the new residents.  The affordable and homeless housing development was made possible with a contribution of $19 million from the City, under the leadership of Councilmember Price and HHH funding.
