Portland unveils new apartment complex to house the homeless
PORTLAND (WGME) – Tuesday in Portland, many people attended the grand opening of a new apartment complex that houses people in the area who are homeless.
The project is the third of its kind in the city.
The companies Avesta Housing and Preble Street combined to create the Huston Commons, which will house 30 homeless people in the Portland area.
Organizers say the project will help the homeless men and women who have mental or physical disabilities live a little bit easier.
Mayor Ethan Strimling spoke at the opening, and he says that he hopes to push for at least five more housing projects like the Huston Commons throughout the city.
