CREW Richmond’s Annual Meeting took place at New Clay House, a Virginia Supportive Housing development, at 1125 W. Clay Street in the historic Carver neighborhood. The 123-year-old building, owned by Virginia Supportive Housing (VSH), was fully renovated and expanded, almost doubling the footprint and number of apartments from 47 to 80. The apartments now average 350 square feet with open floor plans and full kitchens and bathrooms. The development boasts an internal courtyard to bring in natural light, a welcoming gathering space, and onsite parking. VSH anticipates completion in the first quarter of 2019. Virginia Supportive Housing’s mission is to end homelessness by providing permanent supportive housing across the Commonwealth.
The tour was well attended by CREW members and was followed by an engaging wine social at The Richmond Wine Station, 2930 W. Broad Street, catered by Mosaic.
