Pacific Builders began work this year on the Willow Terrace Apartments project in Ukiah, CA. Developed by Rural Communities Housing Development Corporation (RCHDC); this 38-unit apartment complex including an administrative building, maintenance building and manager's quarters was designed to house the city's mentally ill adults who are homeless or are at risk of being homeless.
The buildings were designed by architect, Philippe Lapotre, to create an intimate space so people can hang out and feel protected. Garden spaces will surround the building allowing a sense of privacy and community.
In 2019, three dozen residents will be moved off the streets into homes of their own and being part of a community with on-site services available to them.
