SECU Foundation state agency team on rehab housing
RALEIGH, N.C. (8/31/12)--The SECU Foundation has partnered with the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency (NCHFA) to fund two transitional housing projects.

The SECU Foundation partnered with the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency to help fund the conversion of a jail annex into the new "Marvin E. Roberts II Transitional Living Facility," a rehabilitation housing center for men and women recently released from the correctional system.

The foundation, funded solely by members of State Employees' CU (SECU), Raleigh, N.C., provided a 0% construction loan to assist with funding the transformation of the former New Hanover County Jail Annex into the new "Marvin E. Roberts II Transitional Living Facility," a rehabilitation housing center for men and women recently released from the correctional system.

The 46-bed Transitional Living Facility is sponsored by Leading Into New Communities (LINC) Inc., a non-profit organization that provides or coordinates supportive services to clients 18 and older entering the program. LINC offers job and life skills training, job placement and case management and medical and mental health services. 

The SECU Foundation also provided a 0% construction loan to help build the James Street Group Living Dormitories, which serve as transitional housing for individuals recovering from substance abuse.

Sponsored by the Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers (TROSA) Inc., the project includes two new 13-bedroom dormitory buildings located on a 12.5-acre campus in Durham, N.C. The facility will accommodate up to 150 participants in a safe, supportive, and drug-free environment, said the foundation.

Among the services TROSA provides are vocational training, adult literacy or General Equivalency Diploma (GED) education, counseling, mentoring, leadership training and aftercare.
