The Dillingham Apartments, a Park Place Behavioral Health Services project, which will be built at the intersection of Dillingham Avenue and June Street, are part of a commitment to ensure individuals with mental illness or substance abuse issues have an opportunity to have a permanent place to call home. The 3-story Dillingham Apartments will have 22 one-bedroom apartments, and eight two-bedroom apartments, and will feature a community area, consisting of a visitor’s lobby, combined computer/classroom/ community room, lounge/entertainment room, case manager and property manager offices.
“Our most vulnerable population are the chronic homeless, and many of them suffer from substance abuse and mental health issues. They will have programs here provided by Park Place Behavioral Health Services to help them. This is not just a ‘come in and go out’ facility, this is permanent supportive housing, Osceola County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb shared after the groundbreaking.”
Residents will have access to a variety of supportive services offered onsite by peer specialists and a case manager provided by Park Place Behavioral Health Care, as well as access to agency resources and support for navigating social services available in the community.
Every unit in the Dillingham Apartments will be for a low income individual or family, and one of the things that make it unique is that this building is being built specifically for people with mental illness, Park Place Behavioral Health Care President and CEO said during the ground break.
In attendance were numerous community leaders including Commissioner Cheryl Grieb for District 4, who has been a strong proponent of the development, Kissimmee Mayor Olga Gonzalez, and Kissimmee Commissioners Angela Eady, Janette Martinez, and Olga Castano. #KissimmeeNews #PositivelyOsceola #OsceolaNews
