The Open Door Mission cut the ribbon on their new apartment complex that will give men, women and children the opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness.
The Mission officially opened their 41 unit of two and three bedroom apartments this week. C-E-O Candace Gregory says the new complex will be staffed 24/7. Along with housing, the building has a fitness center, an educational learning center, will offer computer classes along with life skill classes and 12-step meetings.
Gregory says many of those who will live at the complex do have jobs and go to school so this is a stepping stone in their path to independence.
