Tuesday afternoon, community members celebrated the opening of a building honoring the legacy of a man who dedicated his life to helping others.
Steve O’Neil, who passed away in 2013, was an advocate of homeless awareness.
Tuesday marked the grand opening of a 44–unit, affordable housing apartment building, with on–site support services to help break the cycle of long–term homelessness.
“It feels like we’ve done a great thing here, but there’s a whole lot more work to do,” said Rick Klun, executive director of Center City Housing. “Whether it’s homeless youth, or whether it’s single adults that are homeless, the problem is not gone and we need to keep working on it.”
Some apartments are still in need of furniture and household appliances.
