Restoring Homes and Hope
Homefull purchased the apartment complex at S. Gettysburg Ave several years back. Their mission was to restore the 34-unit facility to create a permanent supportive housing complex for families currently struggling with homelessness. Less than a week after the grand opening, they have filled every single one of their units and have more applicants on a waiting list. This facility is one of the only places in Montgomery County that can provide housing for an entire family.
The complex consists of six residential townhouse buildings with two, three, and four-bedroom apartments. A seventh building contains social services offices, after school care, donation storage and more. A new playground and community garden are located at the center of the complex.
New kitchens with full-sized appliances, new cabinets, new windows, new interior and exterior doors, new laminate flooring throughout the units, and complete bathroom renovations.
This project was funded with the help of RiverHills Bank, Oberer Companies, tax credits, donations, and a number of other great resources dedicated to improving the lives of others. The goal is to ensure the project's continued functionality for decades to come. These renovations also improved handicap accessibility, energy efficiency, and lowered its maintenance costs which will provide significant benefits to the operating costs. This leaves more money to allocate to family needs.
