Barbara’s Place Grand Opening

The area's first of its kind housing for homeless people with disabilities will officially open today. Barbara's Place" in Redmond is a six unit apartment complex. Keith Wooden with Housing Works says it will provide tenants with safe housing and needed social services. “It will be used as a supporting housing complex. What means is it will have people who are clients of Deschutes County Health Services who are also homeless. So this is the first one of it’s kind in the area serving both the homeless population a well as the homeless with mental illness.” The apartment is mostly funded through several State grants. Barbara's Place is named in honor of Barbara Stone, a long time Housing Works Board Member, and advocate of the disabled.
