Dickson Place will offer housing to individuals with mental health diagnoses
Dickson, Tenn.—Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading not-for-profit provider of community-based mental health and addiction services, recently broke ground for Dickson Place, a residential apartment building located in Dickson, Tenn. Dickson Place will provide safe, comfortable and affordable housing to low-income individuals with mental health diagnoses.
“Centerstone is proud to build this beautiful new apartment complex in Dickson,” said Kris Blount, Director of Adult Residential Services for Centerstone. “We know this new building will be important to the community. We look forward to continuing our work with local leadership to find creative ways to fill needs and provide valuable resources.”
Centerstone’s second residential apartment building, Dickson Place is funded by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (FLHBank) and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA). It rests on three acres and will provide eight one-bedroom apartments. Each unit will be accessible for individuals with disabilities.
Dickson place is modeled after Marshall Place in Marshall County – Centerstone’s first residential apartment building, completed in 2006.
Located on Hopes Way off Lewis Hollow Road, construction on the apartments began April 1 and is expected to be complete by December. An open house will be held for local community leaders on January 18, 2012.
