Welcome to our first update of Project Legacy, a public-private partnership between the Housing Authority of the County of Riverside and TruEvolution that will provide 49 beds of permanent supportive housing, a fitness center, career center, and wrap around services, all available on one campus.
Take a walk with us on this large-scale project! At the start of construction, the safety of the existing structures posed a challenge. Though issues such as termite damage, wood rotting, and uneven flooring made it unsafe to keep the buildings in their original states, we are happy to report that the necessary repairs are being made to ensure the buildings are safe for the clients, community members, and staff members who will frequent these walls.
Our goal is to preserve as much as we can and rebuild in alignment with neighborhood aesthetics. In keeping with this goal, we would like to send a special thank you to Old Riverside Foundation for accepting our donated items for reuse such as windows, cabinetry, tiles, door handles, etc.
We appreciate the support of the surrounding community during this journey of preserving these buildings’ history while also creating a groundbreaking opportunity for the Inland Empire!
It is with much enthusiasm that we launch our first Project Legacy Renovation Update! Project Legacy, a public-private partnership between the Housing Authority of the County of Riverside and TruEvolution, is a 49-bed campus that will provide healthcare, job training, and housing for LGBTQ+ youth, seniors, and people living with HIV.
We are excited to take the community with us on these continuing renovation updates. Though numerous issues surfaced during bungalow discovery, we would like to share that the necessary repairs are being made to ensure the buildings are safe and up to date for our clients.
TruEvolution appreciates your patience and support during the remodeling of this historical part of Downtown Riverside. Our goal is to preserve the history these buildings encompass, while providing structures that are safe for the entire community to enjoy. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
