District 46 State Representative Kristen A. Arrington joined the Transition House, Inc. recently in presenting a $250,000 check in appropriations funds to the Victory Village affordable housing project in Osceola County.
Victory Village apartments is the first permanent supportive housing program in Osceola County and works to allow homeless families the ability to live comfortably and independently so that they can re-establish themselves into society.
Victory Village is a 20-unit apartment complex, ranging from one to three-bedrooms, with access to transportation and within walking distance to shops and other services. Residents have access to varying services, from playgrounds and laundry to an onsite community center. Qualified residents will also have access to education, employment assistance, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and job training.
“I’m proud to consistently bring home state dollars to assist with bolstering affordable housing projects for Osceola County. This money will be used for necessary repairs and updates to Victory Village Apartments to keep from raising rents on tenants on fixed incomes. With attainable housing being a challenge in Central Florida—we don’t want rent increases to push them out of their homes. It is important that everyone has a safe and comfortable place they can call home,” said Rep. Arrington.
The check presentation and celebration was held at 4596 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy Kissimmee, FL 34746
