Groundbreaking Celebration — The Anchor at Mariners Inn

LBBA was delighted to celebrate the groundbreaking for The Anchor at Mariners Inn. The project has been in the works for a while and the excitement surrounding this significant development was communicated throughout speeches from Detroit’s mayor, Mike Duggan, the director of MSHDA, and other board members, staff, and clients of Mariners Inn.

The Mariners Inn, a non-profit agency founded in 1925, has long been providing shelter, substance abuse treatment, and transitional housing for men living in Detroit. The Anchor’s new mixed-use building will serve as an addition to Mariners Inn’s existing buildings (built in 1955) located in Detroit’s lower Cass Corridor. This new development will not only offer 44 units of permanent supportive housing, 40 units of recovery housing, ground-floor retail, and outdoor gathering spaces, but it will allow Mariners Inn to service women for the first time.

“An inadequate supply of affordable housing is one of the most significant gaps in the substance abuse treatment system…This new facility will give us the opportunity to provide a continuum of services, from emergency shelter to permanent supportive housing, all in close proximity to ensure successful cost-effective treatment, case management, and aftercare for the people we serve.” — Mariners Inn CEO, David Sampson

Thank you to our wonderful clients and partners —  Ethos Development Partners and Cinnaire.
