Ministry Cuts The Ribbon On 40-Unit Transitional Housing Complex For Homeless
It's not a band-aid solution. More of a superglue solution.
One non-profit isn't looking for short-term answers to solve the long-term issues of homelessness.
Today, Project Hope cut the ribbon on "Hope Villas" a two-acre, 40-unit transitional housing complex in northeast Ocala.
The housing will offer homes for up to two years for homeless families.
But organizers say it's just a starting point.
Project Hope was established in 2007, as a non-profit that offers long-term, transitional housing as well as job and life skills training to homeless individuals.
Officials say they are reserving several of the units for renters to help pay off the five-year mortgage on the property.
Organizers say there is already a wait list for the vacant units.
