Tri-City Homeless Coalition Partners with Community to Provide Supportive Housing and Services
April 3rd Event to Break News of Exceptional Gifts from Major Service Organization, Philanthropic Foundation, and Financial Institution
by Mary Ellen Gallagher, Tri-City Homeless Coalition
At a time when communities all over the Bay Area are struggling with homelessness, a broad and diverse group of individuals and organizations is joining together to address the problem.
On April 3rd, the Tri-City Homeless Coalition (TCHC) officially breaks ground on the BridgeWay East Development, an expansion of their current facility for families moving from shelters toward permanent housing. The enterprise owes its fulfillment to a complex network of support from local businesses, community-based organizations, faith communities, government entities, foundations, and individuals.
The undertaking will build eighteen new units and add a community room, a computer room, a children's education room, and outdoor facilities. The development will comprise transitional housing units that offer subsidized housing and units of long-term affordable housing for families with disabled heads of household. It will be located in the Irvington District of Fremont near TCHC's administrative offices.
The groundbreaking event takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2004 at 4153 Bay Street in Fremont. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved to nearby Irvington Presbyterian Church on Chapel Way.
"When people come together to solve a problem," asserts Capital Campaign Chair Hattie Hyman-Hughes, they can accomplish miracles."
