HOUSTON - The Women's Home broke ground on an 84-unit apartment complex that will include support services for women and children.

The $15 million project, located at the corner of Jacquelyn St. and Hammerly Blvd., received a $500,000 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grant in 2014 from Amegy Bank and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas).

In addition to the 80 two-bedroom and four three-bedroom apartments, there will be an outdoor barbecue, and a playground on the 2.3 acres, which will serve low-income, homeless, and chronically homeless families.

Within walking distance will be an elementary school, a bus line with shopping centers, medical care, job opportunities, and The Women's Home's new WholeLife Service Center, which will provide services in physical and behavioral health, after-school and summer programs, and more.
