REDDING, Calif. - New housing is opening up for low income families in Redding, and people say more housing is a must!
On 2900 Polk Street, construction is underway for the second phase of the Woodlands.
Ten units are open through referral with Shasta County’s Health and Human Services agency. While another 10 units will be 2 to 3 bedroom apartments and house low income families.
The newly built complex will be right next to the other apartment buildings.
“It's pretty cool, it's more housing for people,” said Mike Davis, who lives on the property. “They're low income people can get into them easier, and it helps out”
According to the Shasta Health and Human Services Agency, about 140 people currently live on the property. Nineteen of the apartments are for clients who have severe mental health or are at risk of being homeless.
