ARLINGTON -- For some pregnant teens, it can be hard to focus on eating right, getting prenatal care and creating a safe, healthy world for their baby when they don't have a place to call their own. To give those babies a better start in life, the Arlington Housing Authority and Tarrant County Public Health are collaborating on a supervised-living facility in east Arlington that would temporarily house homeless young mothers.
 
The proposed two-story, five-bedroom house, for up to four participants in the county's Nurse-Family Partnership program, is being billed as the first of its kind in the nation. The county found that many women in the health and self-sufficiency program are from Arlington and don't have family support.
 
The Nurse-Family Partnership program provides Medicaid-eligible participants with maternal and early childhood health services and other resources. The goal is to reduce Tarrant County's high infant mortality rate and help the women meet their career and educational goals so they can provide for their families.

Our Design Philosophy

“The art of dancing stands at the source of all arts that express themselves first in the human person.  The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they all unite.” - Havelock Ellis
 
Building facilities unique to the owner’s special needs requires creative effort to balance function, aesthetics, durability and affordability in operation.  We help clients move through these challenges and manifest their dreams and desires in tangible form.
