Affordable housing community celebrates opening
Friday, January 17, 2020 by Tai Moses
The Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department and LifeWorks invite the community at large to help celebrate the grand opening of a new 29-unit affordable housing community in East Austin. According to NHCD, the Works II “offers a path to self-sufficiency for young parents, youth experiencing homelessness, or youth who are aging out of the foster care system, including an extensive array of supportive services available through the LifeWorks’ Sooch East Austin Youth & Family Resource Center.” The project was made possible in part by $1.8 million from the city’s Rental Housing Development Assistance program and federal grant funding administered by the Austin Housing Finance Corporation. Jan. 21, 11 a.m., The Works II, 835 N. Pleasant Valley Road. Please RSVP here.
