Adele and Ber Pieper Family Place – Now Open!

Peiper Family Place 2

In response to the need for an affordable environment in which families can thrive, The Women’s Home has completed the first phase of a two part capital project to further develop a unique community for women and their families. Opened on October 1, 2016, Adele and Ber Pieper Family Place, our $15.7 million permanent supportive housing complex is LEED certified, with 80 two- bedroom and 4 three-bedroom, unfurnished apartments. Residents have access to laundry facilities, community meeting space, and an outdoor barbecue and play area. The housing facility is located on 2.3 acres of land at the corner of Jacquelyn Street and Hammerly Boulevard, within walking distance to Jane Cizik Garden Place and our soon to be complete Mabee WholeLife® Service Center, an elementary school, a bus line, shopping centers, medical care, and employment opportunities. Two full time case managers are on-site to assist vulnerable families towards stability and success.

This incredible facility has opened its doors devoting 40 of the apartment homes to those families who have faced chronic homelessness. These families have been accepted from area shelters to a home of their own. Since the fastest growing segment of homeless are single women with children, programs and services will be provided that erase their vulnerability and vastly improve their futures.

We are proud of this complex and the community we will be building there. Were it not for the generous donors listed below, our reach to assist women and their families would not be possible.
