The “Land of 10,000 Lakes” will soon be the home of the first Green House Assisted Living homes! Groundbreaking ceremonies took place on a gorgeous sunny morning June 27th in Mankato, Minnesota.
The homes will be called Water’s Edge at Willow Brook, and will be developed and operated by Grace Senior Services. Brad and Heather Bass are the owners and have a deep commitment to serving elders. They began their journey by opening an adult day service out of their home in 1997 and now have several senior housing cooperatives, two Assisted Living facilities, an adult foster care program, and a team of dedicated staffers to work with all of the elders.
During the groundbreaking event, Brad expressed his enthusiasm for the project, “We are excited to be part of the national replication project for Green House homes and for the opportunity to bring this special model to Mankato and the state of Minnesota.” The three homes should be open early next year. A warm welcome to our newest members of the Green House family!
