Navos, an organization devoted to “helping people navigate through troubled waters of great challenges and landing in a state of Recovery and Wellness” will be hosting an open house, program and lunch buffet on Thursday, Aug. 6th to celebrate the completion of Burien Heights, a new housing development designed for low-income  and disabled adults, including veterans.

The event will run from 11:30am to 1pm Thursday at the new housing, located at 1115 SW 134th in Burien.

The construction of the Burien Heights Residences marks the completion of the first phase of Navos’ long-term plan to build a new Mental Health & Wellness Center in Burien on the parcel directly to the south.

Navos will also celebrate the purchase of apartments for 14 more people adjacent to the new construction. This project will eventually be able to provide long term housing and support services for thirty-six adults in recovery.

Providing a community of safe, decent and affordable living for adults succeeding in recovery

Lunch will be provided by Third Runway Cafe & Catering, an employment training program of Navos.

This is what the lot looked like back in November of 2008.

According to their website:

Navos’ implementation of Recovery and Resiliency Services in mental health care is setting a new standard. These new housing units, with the other 260 homes for adults who live in Navos owned or operated housing, demonstrate our success in working with individuals and families affected by serious mental and emotional illness, as well as their successes living fuller and richer lives in the community.

    I am continuing to get calls from my tenants about being awakened at 3 AM by your client screaming obscenities in the parking lot of the Burien apartments you own. They are now routinely calling the police and have contacted several members of your staff and are getting the buck passing type of run around. You stated in your presentation to the public about this facility that these tenants are going to fit into the neighborhood and not cause these types of problems. I don’t think Navos is living up to this promise.
