Providing well-designed housing for people experiencing chronic homelessness is just one facet of Step Up’s mission, however. It’s also about providing people who live in these buildings with community.

“Housing is healthcare,” said Step Up’s Vice President of Community Development, Carolyn Baker. “Making sure that people experiencing chronic homelessness and mental health issues have a safe place to live is a medical issue.”, she said. “Step Up buildings provide not only shelter for the most vulnerable members of our community, they also provide a rich array of support services, in which tenants can — but are not required to — participate.”, Baker said.

The completion of the new Kauffman Apartments marks the fulfillment of a Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action: to develop and operate 200 units of permanent supportive housing for people experiencing chronic homelessness and mental health issues. To celebrate the achievement, Step Up will hold an official Grand Opening ceremony September 24th 2-4pm. The public is invited.
