Hope for the Homeless

Hope for the Homeless Avon Park Housing AuthorityA three-year-long project of the Avon Park Housing Authority has come to an end and a new beginning will bring brighter days for families who have fallen on difficult times.

The Hope for the Homeless project has transformed 16 public housing family units into a complex that will serve as temporary homes for families who have been struck by homelessness.

A $1.3 million loan program will be used to “rehabilitate” a section of the development’s lakeside property.

APHA Executive Director Larry Shoeman issued a statement prior to the Lakeside Park Emergencey/Transitional Program Open House Thursday morning.

“The Authority is truly excited about this special initiative to assist those families who have become ‘casualties of our economy,'” Shoeman said.
