GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Karis and The House held a groundbreaking today for a new facility. The Karis Apartments off of N. 12th Street will include 34 units and on-site access to mental health.

In addition to combating homelessness, the House says this facility will also help the community save money. Philip Mangano, a homeless policy expert, conducted a study claiming, the cost of sustaining homelessness is between $35,000 and $150,000 a year. These costs include homeless shelters and social services.

Developers say the project will be complete next year.
