The YW Sheriff King Redevelopment is a complete revitalization of the original crisis shelter, which was in operation for 40 years at the same site. With the pandemic in 2020, continued economic downturn, and high rates of domestic violence, YW pushed hard to get this project off the ground. In 2021, CANA was chosen as construction manager to build the new facility, which consists of two buildings, an affordable housing complex and a shelter for more short-term needs.
The team completed the YW Taylor Family Home in February and the Crisis Shelter on the east side of the property is slated to wrap up at the end of July.
The project was broken out into four phases: demolition of the existing building, the Affordable Housing Unit, the Crisis Shelter, and the courtyard/exterior site works, with the latter just getting started in the last couple weeks. This final phase is also set to wrap up mid-summer.
