2nd facility to house homeless now open

For Ron Moore, Grace Mary Manor may be the nicest place he's ever lived. =

    "It's like the Sheraton Hotel or something," the 63-year-old =
homeless man said Wednesday, sipping punch at the celebration of the =
building's opening.=20
    Moore hopes to be one of the first residents to spend the night at =
the new 84-room facility for homeless men and women. The second of its =
kind in the Salt Lake Valley, Grace Mary will house only those defined =
as "chronically" homeless.=20
    Following a "housing first" model, residents receive housing, then =
work on challenges ranging from addiction to mental health problems, =
with case workers based on-site.=20
    Moore looks forward to an apartment as a place where he can be =
"stable for a while." The rooms are already outfitted with a leather =
lounge chair, a bed and homemade quilt, along with plates and groceries =
for a resident's first home-cooked meal.=20
    Run by the Salt Lake County housing authority, Grace Mary's new $9 =
million building has studio apartments and a variety of social spaces, =
from an exercise room with treadmills to a library with a fireplace.=20
    "What we don't want is for people to move in, shut their door and =
not come out," said Valerie Walton, a development specialist with the =
housing authority.=20
    Grace Mary comes on the heels of Sunrise Metro, another permanent =
housing complex for the homeless, which opened nearly a year ago. The =
2,000 chronically homeless Utahns will be targeted by these and future =
housing projects, part of the state's 10-year-plan to reduce =
homelessness.=20
    Grace Mary Manor is named after the late Grace Mary Ivers Gallivan, =
the wife of Jack Gallivan, former publisher of The Salt Lake Tribune. =
The couple founded the Crusade for the Homeless in 1999.=20
