Salvation Army apartment sets grand opening
Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN
The grand opening of The Salvation Army's Castleview building will be held on Wednesday, starting with a noon ribbon-cutting and dedication of the new ministry site at 120 N. Broadway.
Tours are available of the dental, medical, and housing areas. A light lunch will be served and parking will be available in the adjacent parking lot of the old Thrift Store.
The newly constructed $7.5 million building is funded by federal and state programs, as well as local fundraising efforts. The majority of the facility is dedicated to Castleview Apartments, a permanent supportive housing complex, offering 32 units for single individuals half of whom are homeless and disabled. More than 100 people applied for housing, and 25 have moved into the facility through March. All 32 rooms are expected to be occupied by April 15.
