The Green House Project announces plans to break ground nationally
The Green House Project has announced plans to build several Green Houses nationwide. The project is an initiative to open more home-like long-term care facilities.
Calvary Baptist Church in Columbus, GA plans to build 10 Green Houses that will serve as many as 100 residents on its 56-acre campus.
Two non-profits in Michigan, Pinecrest Medical Facility in Powers and Presbyterian Villages of Michigan in Redford, are also planning to build Green Houses. They are in the project-planning phase. Pinecrest will break ground on the first of five such homes in May 2005.
Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitative Center in Lincoln, NE will break ground on its first Green House this fall.
The first four Green Houses in the nation have been housing elders since May 2004 in Tupelo, MS.
Planning for the projects has been funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
