Housing units open in east Raleigh

From Staff ReportsOctober 5, 2006 

— More than 100 people gathered Wednesday to celebrate 24 new affordable housing units off Sunnybrook Road in east Raleigh, a $2.9 million investment paid for with federal, state and local dollars.

The event drew three Triangle congressmen -- U.S. Reps. David Price, Bob Etheridge and Brad Miller, all Democrats -- to help open Oak Hill and Oak Hollow. Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker and Wake County Commissioners Chairman Tony Gurley also spoke.

"We continue to progress as a state," Etheridge said. "What we do for the least among us determines what kind of people we are."

Built by the nonprofit developer CASA, or Community Alternatives for Supportive Abodes, Oak Hollow will house homeless women with disabilities and their children. Oak Hill is meant for single, disabled adults.
