he site of a former mortuary will soon have an afterlife: affordable housing.
In the midst of a housing crunch, Lane County’s housing authority Homes For Good is using multiple forms of funding to construct a four-story permanent supportive housing project called the Nel at 11th and Charnelton, where the Trauma Healing Project and before that the Poole-Larsen Funeral Home once stood.
According to Homes For Good spokesperson Ela Kubok, the Nel will be similar to Commons on MLK in that its residents will be for those who are experiencing homelessness. The housing project will have three stories consisting of 45 affordable housing units and a ground floor commons, according to the building permit. Click here to learn more about this Essex project.
