New Housing for Homeless Coming To Terre Haute
Terre Haute, Ind. – Mental Health America of West Central Indiana, a Terre Haute nonprofit, was selected for a fast-tracked funding program on Monday. This program, administered by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority in partnership with the Corporation for Supportive Housing, will provide the funding and technical assistance necessary to develop an apartment complex that provides supportive housing for persons experiencing homelessness in the Wabash Valley.
Proposals for this program, referred to as the 2020 Indiana Permanent Supportive Housing Institute, were solicited from organizations statewide. MHA of West Central Indiana’s proposal was selected, in addition to those of three organizations in Indianapolis and one in Fort Wayne. MHA of West Central Indiana currently operates three Terre Haute multi-family developments that provide housing for area residents experiencing homelessness: Younity House, Younity Village, and Liberty Village. Each development targets different demographics in our community, which provides multiple options for housing the diversity of persons experiencing homelessness. This new
development primarily focuses on families that are living without any housing.
“Monday’s announcement is a huge win for our community,” said CEO Myra Wilkey. “Evidence has demonstrated that Supportive Housing is highly effective in helping persons experiencing chronic homelessness reintegrate into the community.”
