And with those words, Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel helped make it official: Talia Apartments in Springfield, Missouri is underway.
On July 7th, along with Treasurer Zweifel and our supportive services partner Harmony House, we officially broke ground on the site that will soon provide survivors of domestic violence with the safety, security and comfort of a true home.
The name Talia is derived from the Latin word for ‘tale’—and for many families, this will be the place where a brighter chapter can begin.
Opening in 2017, the development will have 46 units—a mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom—each with its own kitchen area and washer & dryer. This permanent supportive housing will offer an integrated mix of affordable, supportive and market rate units—50% of which are devoted to survivors of domestic violence.
