Lifeline Family Center to Begin Housing Project
In a special ceremony, the Lifeline Family Center will break ground at 10 a.m., July 18, at 907 Southeast Fifth Avenue, in Cape Coral, on a unique, affordable housing facility for single women with children graduating from their program. The new housing will provide four, two-bedroom apartments in initial, two-year agreements so participants can continue to grow in their career path and utilize the on-campus day care facility while they work, with rents being what it costs for insurance and to maintain the facility; about $500 a month, including water.
“This is the next step in helping our moms and their children toward independence,” says Lifeline Family Center CEO Kathy Miller. “Accessible and affordable housing in a safe neighborhood is difficult to come by in Lee County. As a single parent raising young children, it is almost impossible. The availability for community housing programs is often years of waiting on a list.”
Founded in 1996, the nonprofit Lifeline Family Center provides young women in crisis pregnancies a safe home in Cape Coral and a learning environment including education, job training, professional counseling, parenting classes and spiritual guidance.
