HRB completes its first development, Island Home on Knechtel Way, with donations from the community, state funding, and discounted services from an Island construction firm and architect. Island Home comprises five two-story buildings with 10 units in all. The homes, reserved for families with children, are designated as transitional housing with a two-year maximum stay and a requirement that one household member participate in financial and career education at Helpline House, located just next door. Today, like all HRB homes, they provide permanent housing.
