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.
