Construction crews are set to break ground on a permanent supportive housing project in Plymouth on Wednesday. Saint Katharina Kasper Serenity Place will provide 18 units for very low-income individuals and families with children experiencing homelessness.

According to the Marshall County Economic Development Corp., a groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday to mark the start of the project.

The development is expected to include a two-story energy efficient building. The building will include about 11,000 square feet of residential space and 5,000 square feet of community space.

The Marshall County EDC says the developer, Plymouth-based Garden Court Inc., initiated development of the project in 2016 following a study that identified a need for the housing in Plymouth and surrounding areas.

The Marshall County EDC says local partner organizations will provide transportation, case management services, and mental health and substance abuse treatment and prevention, among other health services to residents.

South Bend-based Bradley Co. is expected to manage the project when leased.
