ReStart Inc Sponsoring New Apartments in Waldo

ReStart Inc, is an organization dedicated to helping homeless men, women and families in need, helping them transition to an independent lifestyle.  Using funds supplied by HUD and others, they are building a small apartment complex in Waldo at 76th and Washington.

waldoFourteen one bedroom apartments will be available to young adults, aged 18-24, who have aged out of the foster care system.  There will be a live in, on site resident manager. ReStart wanted a central location for this project, the first of it’s kind in Kansas City, so the tenants would be close to  businesses for services and job opportunities, plus easy access to bus service.  Some Waldo homeowners are concerned about the effect this building may have on their property values.

A meeting to discuss the project is scheduled for March 14 at 10am at the Waldo public library.
