Springfield Non-Profit Opens Affordable Housing Facility

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Springfield based “The Kitchen” celebrated the opening of their newest affordable housing development.

The ceremony took place Tuesday with both Mayor Ken McClure and Missouri Governor Mike Parson in attendance.

Officials with The Kitchen say the facility is 44-units designed for low-income and formerly homeless seniors, more specifically veterans.

Maplewood Villas, as the development is called, is for seniors 55 and up and every unit is ground floor accessible.

11 of the units have been set aside specifically to help homeless veterans.
