This latest gift demonstrates his insight into the clear need for, and benefit of, housing with on-site support. These housing projects are not short-term solutions; they are the venue where lives disrupted by homelessness can be stabilized and where on-site professionals can provide the care, resources and connections in the community to promote sustainable recovery. Proper housing changes lives. This is a gift, not just to Peter and Paul, but to the entire community.
Thanks to Dennis Jones and his family, Peter and Paul will soon begin construction on its 25-unit facility to assist people who have been chronically homeless. All of us who provide services to this vulnerable population are incredibly grateful and thank him for his leadership.
