Located on 21,000 square feet in Houston’s Third Ward, this sixteen unit project, consisting of one and two story buildings, was designed to match the proportion and volume of existing bungalow and vernacular style housing prevalent in the Third Ward area. The project was constructed and will be operated with funds from HUD’s Supportive Housing Program and City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department. In addition to the sixteen residential units the development includes administrative and counseling space, laundry facilities for the residents, and multipurpose/activity space for group functions. This supportive housing program provides temporary housing, counseling, educational programs, job training, job placement, and day care for homeless women with children. The development provides a secure environment for the residents with 24 hour monitored controlled access. The average resident family is expected to stay between three and nine months until permanent safe housing is found. Day care and other social services will be provided by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center located across the street from the development. MCCM provided programming, and all architectural and engineering design services.
