Episcopal Homes of Minnesota: Despite Harsh Winter, Major Construction Progress has Occurred for Six Green House Homes

While we are all anxiously waiting for spring to truly arrive this year, none could be wishing for that more than the construction workers on the project for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota! Warmer weather and fewer snow storms will be welcomed with open arms! Despite the tough winter season, major progress has been made on the $45 million dollar project.
Midway Village will provide a variety of living options for Elders including skilled nursing services in The Green House homes. Ten Elders will live in each of the six homes which is being called “Episcopal Church Home – The Gardens”. Not only will Elders enjoy their own bedroom, bath, home cooking, a hearth and balcony or terrace…they will also be able to enjoy the laughter of children each day. A day care center will be part of Midway Village. It’s something the organization has wanted to do for years, but they never had the space to provide the services. The center will be available to staff and neighborhood infants and toddlers. A truly wonderful inter-generational experience for all!
Another important aspect to the project includes light rail service that will pass right in front of the project…making transportation more convenient for Elders, staff and families.
