Back Bay Mission’s newest affordable housing project for homeless veterans is now underway!

Join the Groundbreaking Ceremony Wednesday, March 12th at 10:00 a.m. on the project site, 905 Division St., Biloxi, MS. HomePort II is a 6 unit affordable housing project for homeless veterans in South MS.

HomePort II is the second home that the Mission has build to address homelessness among veterans in South MS. The Mission’s first home for homeless disabled veterans (HomePort I) opened in 2013.

HomePort II is a permanent supportive housing project and is a result of both federal and local collaborations between Back Bay Mission, The Home Consortium of Biloxi and Gulfport, Biloxi Housing Authority, Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Department of Veterans Affairs, The Home Depot Foundation, and Keesler Federal Credit Union.

Back Bay Mission is proud to provide affordable, safe, and dignified housing opportunities and services for low and moderate income residents of South MS.
