The Graham at Gracepoint is the result of a joint effort between Gracepoint Wellness, Edmund Gaines Graham Home and DDA Development to create a high-quality housing community for low-income seniors and at-risk homeless residents, many of whom are mentally disabled. The result is a three-story affordable housing complex specially designed to meet the needs of this mixed demographic. The North Wing houses three stories with 45 apartments for the elderly and on the second and third stories of the South Wing there are 45 more apartments for the at-risk homeless. The first floor of the South Wing contains the common area spaces including a commercial kitchen, dining room, fitness room, library, classroom and salon as well as administrative offices for Gracepoint Wellness. The National Green Building Certified project was organized around a secure, central courtyard and was inflected at key points in response to existing large pecan and live oak trees.
