CHUM Emergency Family Shelter and Hillside Apartment to be Named Steve O’Neil Apartments

submitted by chum

Steve O’Neil spent his life in Duluth working for Duluth’s most vulnerable families. His legacy will continue, as the new apartments and emergency shelter bearing his name. They will not only help those families, but will also help fulfill Duluth’s vision of becoming a city that welcomes the stranger, feeds the hungry, and houses the homeless.

The Steve O’Neil Apartments will be a major step in preventing long-term, chronic homelessness for families. The Emergency Family Shelter will address the initial crisis when a family becomes homeless.

The Steve O’Neil Apartments are an $11.2 million project that includes 44 units of permanent supportive housing and 6 units of emergency shelter for families with children who have experienced long-term homelessness. The Steve O’Neil Apartments are being developed by One Roof Community Housing and Center City Housing. CHUM will operate the Emergency Family Shelter and provide supportive services to the families living in the apartments.

For those of us who knew Steve very well, we know he would not want to call attention to himself. I see it as a way to honor his vision, and a way to show people values and a way to live your life. Everyone needs help at one time, Steve was always there, and now his name will be there to help people that need it.
