On Monday, November 10 Operation Stand Down RI and Rhode Island Housing will celebrate the opening of the Pierce Street Apartments in Westerly, Rhode Island. This development is the first to provide permanent supportive housing for veterans in the area. Federal, state and local leaders, funding and community partners, supportive housing providers, affordable housing developers and members of the homeless community are expected to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony.
This 10 unit supportive housing project provides veterans with on-site services that are client centered and include employment and training opportunities. These new homes will assist the state in meeting its goal under the Opening Doors RI plan to end veterans homelessness in Rhode Island. CSH provided a $272,000 pre-development loan along with technical assistance in support of this tremendous project.
