CHUM Emergency Family Shelter and Hillside Apartment to be Named Steve O'Neil ApartmentsOn August 6, only weeks following the memorial service for Steve O'Neil, demolition began on the site of the new Steve O'Neil Apartments at 101-109 W. 4th St. in the Central Hillside neighborhood.
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 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.
By integrating the family shelter within the Steve O'Neil Apartments, CHUM gains substantial savings in construction costs compared to a stand-alone structure and allows us to provide on-site supportive services and 24-hour security to families in both permanent housing and emergency shelter.
Contributions to CHUM's capital campaign for the project can be made online or by mailing a check to: CHUM, 102 W. 2nd St., Duluth, MN 55802.
CHUM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit human services agency sponsored and governed by 39 Duluth congregations. CHUM began in 1973 when ten Central Hillside congregations pooled resources to assist low-income people in Duluth.The organizational goals are to provide basic needs services for homeless and marginalized members of our community while working to effect changes which will eliminate the need for our services.
