A longtime provider of affordable housing in Grand Rapids is nearing completion of its most recent project, and the state has recently chipped in twice to help make it a reality.
Dwelling Place of Grand Rapids, which has made housing and community revitalization its top priority for the past 32 years, is finishing up its renovation of the Herkimer Apartments, at the former Herkimer Hotel at 323 S. Division.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - For a long time, South Division in Grand Rapids has been an area that has seen people and businesses move in only to move out a short time later.
But could that area become the next part of downtown Grand Rapids to see a major resurgence? Organizations like Dwelling Place are working to make sure that happens.
"Over the last 10 years there have been a lot of changes along south Division. If you come down to visit you'll notice we have a lot more stores that are opening," said Jenn Schaub with Dwelling Place.

Eating more fruits and vegetables can help you lose weight, stay fit, and reduce your risk for many chronic diseases. And they taste great – especially when you get them fresh and in season.

Dwelling Place improves the lives of people by creating quality affordable housing, providing essential support services and serving as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization.
