Breaking Ground on Extension of Crawford Homes, Supportive Housing for the Homeless

Play

Yesterday, representatives from local organizations including Life Designs
and the Shalom Community Center broke ground on what they call Crawford 2.
The project is an extension of the Crawford Homes, a complex in
Bloomington offering permanent supportive housing for people experiencing
homelessness. The new building will be constructed next to the existing
Crawford Homes at 2440 South Henderson Street. In total, 43 new housing
units will be added. The project is being developed by LIFEDesigns. The
Shalom Center and other members of the South Central Housing Network are
providing services to residents. The executive director of the Shalom
Center, Reverend Forrest Gilmore, spoke with WFHB News Director Joe
Crawford today about the project and we bring you that interview now for
today’s WFHB community report. The cost of the construction project is
estimated at seven-point-four million dollars. It’s being paid for with
federal funds, as well as money from the city of Bloomington and private
contributors.
