Treasure House will include 30 apartments as well as common areas such as a kitchen, living and dining rooms. It will provide educational programming, social activities, and opportunities develop friendships and sportsmanship.
“Living an independent life is something we all want and deserve,” said Thunderbirds Charities president Andy Markham. “We’re happy to provide assistance and continue to support of Treasure House and all the excellent work they do to help people in our community.”
Treasure House is expected to open in April.
