Residents at the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Inter-Faith Council for Social Service Community House on Rosemary Street will move to their new location at 1315 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The new facility will provide a transitional home for 52 men.
The State Employees’ Credit Union Community House celebrated the opening of the facility with the community Monday morning. Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt, Carrboro Mayor Lydia Lavelle, Chancellor Carol Folt and U.S. Rep. David Price were among the speakers at the grand opening.
The SECU Community House’s mattresses still have plastic packaging wrapped around them. The shelves in the laundry room are waiting to be stocked. The aluminum kitchen counters shine — and IFC residents will begin moving in Thursday.
“I’m excited and nervous,” said resident Chris Horton, who is part of the residential staff. He said he will work the third shift making breakfast for all the residents.
