The apartments will serve two populations in need of permanent, supportive housing. IHDC is partnering with Deborah’s Place, a non-profit provider of housing services to persons who have experienced homelessness, and with Trilogy Behavioral Health, a comprehensive integrated care agency that enables people in mental health recovery to build meaningful and independent lives. Completion is anticipated in early 2024.
