Housing help

December 6, 2012 

ELENA BROWN, President, Kennewick Perry Suites

The boards of Modern Living Services and Kennewick Perry Suites thank the Board of Shalom Ecumenical Council for guiding and supporting us through the Department of Housing and Urban Development 811 application process.

Without their moral and monetary support, our dream to build 14 units for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other disabilities would not have been possible.

Our boards also would like to thank the city of Kennewick, Benton County and the Housing Trust Fund of Washington for providing the rest of the funding necessary to build the 14 units and a manager's unit on the corner of Kennewick and Perry streets in Kennewick.

We hope to break ground in April. Good things can happen for the community when people work together.
