Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to be Held for Grand Opening of Mary's Place
(Wisconsin Rapids, WI) - With the generous support of Legacy Foundation of Central Wisconsin and additional community support, Mary’s Place of Central Wisconsin is opening a new location in Wisconsin Rapids. Mary's Place is a non-profit organization providing short-term housing (averaging 6 months) to adult men and women with no-income or low-income. Due to the apartment style of the Wisconsin Rapids location, Mary’s Place will also be able to serve families. The building is three levels with 10 shared apartment units, a shared laundry room and common area space, and office space for the onsite house manager. The lower level has one ADA accessible unit. Case management, mentoring/life coaching, job service referral, financial guidance, and community referrals will be provided to program participants. Individuals wishing to participate in Mary’s Place programming pay a program fee of $80/week. Transitional housing is intended to be a stepping stone for individuals to build their finances and access programs to support their next move to permanent long-term housing.
The building will be fully operational and ready for participants on Monday, June 19th, 2023. In partnership with the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, Mary’s Place is hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023 at Noon at 520 8th Avenue South, Wisconsin Rapids. Guests are invited to enjoy refreshments and tour the building after the ceremony.
