Supportive housing community opens
Thursday, September 19, 2019 by Tai Moses
Two celebratory events – a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the morning followed by a community party in the evening – will mark the opening of Integral Care’s Terrace at Oak Springs, a housing community designed to support people who are recovering from homelessness, mental health issues and substance use disorders by first giving them a safe place to live. Terrace at Oak Springs will offer furnished, single-occupancy units for 50 people experiencing homelessness in Travis County, half of them veterans. There is a health care clinic on-site and residents will also be able to access employment and wellness services and assistance accessing social services benefits. Speakers at the ribbon-cutting ceremony include Integral Care CEO David Evans, Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison, and others. The community celebration features public tours of the complex, pizza and snow cones, and arts and crafts projects for kids. The ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place 10:30 a.m.-noon; the community celebration is 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, Terrace at Oak Springs, 3000 Oak Springs Drive.
