Pathways to break ground on new housing comples
Thanks to housing assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Pathways Community Health will break ground on Crawford Commons, a 14-unit housing complex for very low income persons with disabilities in Cuba. The ground breaking is set for 10 a.m., May 22 at Martin and Eldon streets in Cuba.
Pathways was named one of only four non-profit organizations in Missouri to receive funding for producing accessible housing, offer rental assistance, and facilitate supportive services for the elderly and persons with disabilities.
Crawford Commons will consist of two single-story newly constructed buildings that face a central courtyard. The community space will include office space for on-site case management as well as a recreational room for tenant enjoyment. The project is being constructed in accordance with the National Association of Home Builders, Green Building Guidelines.
The Cuba community is invited to participate in the ground breaking ceremony and enjoy refreshments. For more information about Pathways, visitwww.pathwaysonline.org or call their Cuba office at (573) 885-1607.
