Plekkenpol Builders, together with Housing First Minnesota Foundation, is renovating two South Minneapolis apartment units for AVIVO, a nonprofit that specializes in addiction treatment and recovery.
This facility houses women along with their children as they seek services for substance addiction. Safe housing is critical for mothers to focus on recovery, go back to school and find employment.
The projects will include everything from plumbing and electrical to cabinets, countertops and appliances. Project Manager Pam Velander said, “I believe this will give them the tools and work to achieve their goals of a better life.”
The two units are scheduled to be finished by this summer.
