Our CEO, Russell Bonanno, attended the ceremony for Switchyard Apartments as a representative of LIFEDesigns on Monday, April 22, 2019. LIFEDesigns proudly partners with South Central Indiana Housing Opportunities to ensure the new Switchyard Development will meet the needs of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This new development will open many opportunities for not only our clients, but the community of Bloomington, Indiana.

The executive director of SCIHO, Deborah Myerson, said “Switchyard Apartments will create an opportunity for low-income households in Bloomington to live in a vibrant community setting. This project supports Bloomington’s need for affordable housing by creating eight new affordable housing units to low-income households who earn 50% to 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI/0, or $26,075 – $50,050 per year.”

LIFEDesigns was grateful to be apart of this celebration and we can’t wait to see what’s to come of this amazing project! For more information about Switchyard Apartments, click here!
