On Friday October 1, 2021 AIDS Services of Dallas received the order to proceed from the City of Dallas office of Homeless Solutions allowing the start of construction on its New Housing Project and on Monday October 4, our general contractor began moving equipment onto the property.
The16 units, houses up to 25 additional HIV+ residents who do not need intense wraparound services.
Through the opening of the Apartments, ASD will be able to transition 25 residents from formerly homeless-permanent supportive housing, to independent affordable living, with 16 head-of-household residents living with HIV/AIDS and up to nine family members. In turn, this will open up space in our four homeless prioritized-permanent supportive housing communities for an additional 25 residents in need of more intensive wraparound support.
This is the first new development project in over 20 years and our fifth Multi-Family Housing Development owned and operated by ASD. We have had many challenges and delays including a fire in August of 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, but we stayed the course, continued to move forward and have shifted our fund-raising efforts towards amenities for the new guests. The completed construction goal is Fall of 2022.
