Harbor House Prepares For Ribbon Cutting For Housing
Harbor House secured a grant which will allow them to create some permanent supportive housing, called the "Tabitha Apartments"
The Superior Telegram is reporting that a grant from the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority will help with housing to help people move from homelessness to permanent housing in Superior. The Grant is worth $25,000 and will be used to renovate 5 apartments to be used for permanent supportive housing in the city of Superior.
Rev. Barb Certa-Werner, of Harbor House, told the Superior Telegram the plan is for women to get case management and services, and on average people usually only live there for three years.
The project is designed to help those with chronic barriers that lead to homelessness, such as a prior eviction or significant barriers to work that prevent people from finding adequate housing.
According to the announcement, the ribbon cutting will be at 4 pm with Rev. Barb Certa-Werner, the former Director of Harbor House Crisis Shelter. Then at 5 pm, Rev. Barb Certa-Werner will perform the Consecration. Director Chelsea Branley and the staff of Harbor House will also be attending and can answer any questions you may have.
Harbor House is asking everyone to follow all social distancing rules and for everyone to wear masks as needed, especially indoors.
For those that don't know Harbor House Crisis Shelters is committed to ending homelessness by providing direct services for homeless single women and families.
