Health Care and Affordable Housing

SOME is excited to partner with Unity to integrate affordable housing with a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC*). Combining medical care and affordable housing dramatically improves the health and well being of vulnerable men, women and children.
The construction of the 37,000 square feet of shell space for the Unity’s health center will be financed by the Healthy Futures Fund (HFF**).
