Saint Louis, Missouri
– Supportive Housing –
Freedom Place is a permanent supportive housing development dedicated to serving formerly homeless veterans. A partnership between The Vecino Group, St. Patrick Center, and the Department of Mental Health, Freedom Place provides 68 furnished apartment units, community space, and onsite supportive services. The development includes rental assistance from the Missouri Department of Mental Health, four full-time case managers, weekly support meetings, a gym, kid playroom, meeting rooms, and living areas.
The development restored a historic building that had been blighted and vacant for more than a decade. The Vecino Group has been selected for a 2015 Preserve Missouri Award in recognition of the restoration.
