Chuck Austin Place

Yakima Housing Authority is proud to announce that construction at Chuck Austin Place is complete!  Chuck Austin Place is a new 41 unit, permanent supportive housing development serving formerly homeless veterans and 12,000 SF supportive service center for both residents and the veteran and homeless community.
