The state-of-the-art facility sets the standard for luxury group living.
Halfacre Construction Company recently wrapped up the newest group home at The Haven, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering the lives of those with unique abilities in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
Dubbed Mary Jane’s House, a ribbon-cutting ceremony is being held on Friday, Jan. 31 at 11:30 a.m. to commemorate the completion of the sixth single-family group home on the nonprofit’s campus. The 5,329-square-foot group home features eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
“The Haven and Halfacre Construction Company came together again to create a first-of-its-kind residential group home,” said Brad Jones, president and CEO of The Haven. “There is simply nothing like Mary Jane’s House in the state and probably the country. It’s completely customized for individuals with disabilities that require the use of a wheelchair and sets the standard for luxury group home living. This is the sixth capital construction project that The Haven has chosen Halfacre Construction Company to lead, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
In addition to the new group home, the commercial construction company performed site work improvements and made upgrades to the existing site utilities on the campus. The $1.4 million project began in January 2019.
Halfacre Construction Company has partnered with The Haven for more than a decade and has worked with the nonprofit on several projects, including two other single-family homes and its therapeutic amenity, a 1,248-square-foot commercial pool.
Located at 4405 DeSoto Road in Sarasota, The Haven currently serves more than 800 children and adults with disabilities through educational, residential and employment programs and services.
