We are excited to announce the completion of Community Counseling & Mediation's newest supportive housing facility, Ruby’s Place! Named in honor of Ruby Sargent, the mother of CCM’s Founder, President and CEO Emory X. Brooks, Ruby's Place was created to provide stabilization and services designed to specifically improve the physical, social and emotional, intellectual and economic well-being of its residents.
A 72-unit supportive housing residence for single adults living with mental illness, Ruby's Place is designed with sensitivity to the surrounding brick residential buildings. Program spaces, including Counseling Rooms, are located on the first floor along with a tenant lounge and community room facing the rear yard. The partial cellar houses mechanical space as well as a computer room, laundry room, and bike storage for residents. The deep site also allows for a rear yard with passive sitting, active recreation and residents’ gardening areas. Click here for gallery
It was designed by MAP Architects for certification through the Enterprise Green Communities Program with green design and energy efficiency as guiding principles for the entire building.
