Start set for supportive housing units

A groundbreaking is set for noon Thursday, April 8, for the Maloney Heights Permanent Supportive Housing slated for 4.3 acres at 2317 W. 18th St., Port Angeles.

The 28 units are for people who have been chronically homeless due to mental health or chemical dependency, plus 14 building sites for Habitat for Humanity self-help homes.

Scheduled guests include Port Angeles Mayor Dan Di Guilio, state Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, and Reps. Lynn Kessler,
D-Hoquiam, and Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim.

Clallam County Commissioners Mike Doherty, Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman also will attend.

The $3.5 million project is funded by the Washington State Housing Trust Fund, Habitat for Humanity, Serenity House and the city of Port Angeles’ Housing Rehabilitation Fund.

It is a collaboration of Serenity House of Clallam County, Habitat for Humanity, the Housing Authority of Clallam County and Peninsula Community Mental Health Center.

Funding to buy the property was provided by the late Maizie Maloney, aunt of Sequim Gazette owner Brown M. Maloney.
