GRAND HAVEN, MI – A new apartment building for adults with disabilities will open next week with a socially distanced car parade to celebrate the new residents.
Gracious Grounds, a Grand Haven, faith-based housing organization, will open Lakeshore Flats at 17003 Lakeshore Flats Drive on Thursday, Sept. 10, with a 4 p.m. car parade planned to welcome 25 residents to the building.
The apartments are structured to allow the residents, who range in age from 20 years old to senior citizens, to live independently while being part of a community, according to a press release.
“We believe that independent living for those with unique abilities is attainable,” said David Burdo, the housing group’s executive director, in the release. “The opening of Gracious Grounds at Lakeshore Flats expands on our mission to provide our residents with an opportunity to live a more independent life where they are able to socialize and integrate themselves into a welcoming community.”
With the opening of the building complex, the organization will house 40 people total, up from 15 currently at the organization’s other two properties.
All community members are invited to take part in the parade on Thursday, according to the release.
Gracious Grounds also provides “employability skills and opportunities, daily living skills and spirituality,” according to its website.
