Crawford Apartments, a 25 unit supportive housing development in Bloomington, Indiana, was recognized with the Lt. Governor's Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing and Community Development (Urban) at the Annual Statewide Conference on Housing and Community Economic Development.
Named after Mr. Frank “Road Dog” Crawford, a gentleman who passed away while experiencing homelessness in Bloomington, the development targets people who have faced chronic homelessness and multiple barriers. Among other things, LifeDesigns, the Shalom Center, Hayes-Gibson International Property Management, and their partners see this as a strong step toward never allowing another person to die on these streets.
This is a Platinum LEED certified building that offers on site services including connecting tenants to healthcare, employment, and the community at large.
The development team for Crawford Apartments attended the Indiana Permanent Supportive Housing Institute and received pre-development funding from CSH. Click here read more about the Crawford Apartments. Click here to read about the impact this development has had on one of the tenants.
