The Community Housing Network’s newest development, Laurel Green, celebrated its grand opening.
“We know just from the research that creating facilities and homes like this truly makes a difference in the trajectory of people’s lives who are often left behind in many ways,” said David Royer, the chief executive officer of the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County.
Laurel Green helps ADAMH in achieving our goal of 250 new permanent supportive housing units in Franklin county by 2026.
