Housing

“Just” People has partnered with Beckel Inc. a property management company that understands the needs of people with limited income who are developmentally disabled, mentally ill or have a head injury, to need their own home. Beckel works with the consumers to provide safe, friendly, affordable housing with leases in their names at 2 locations.

Both apartment complexes are just that apartment complexes and both complexes are staffed by “Just” People employees 24 hours a day. The consumers that live on these properties work, socialize and shop in their communities.

This complex is a 56 unit gated community. There are 3 one bedrooms, 3 three bedrooms, 48 two bedrooms and a directors unit. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a living room, kitchen and eat in dining area. The units have large porches, washer/dryers and plenty of storage space. The property has a large clubhouse, a swimming pool, basketball goals and a front porch full of rocking chairs that the individuals use often.

What’s next?

Beckel has secured 22 acres in Flowery Branch, Ga (Hall County) to begin an innovative new project. As our population ages, there are limited opportunities for integrated housing for them. Beckel will be constructing a safe, secure residential setting for the “aging” group as well as 2 large apartment buildings for new members! We are planning to make this community unique and are hopeful that our members become active community members within the surrounding area!

This innovative, new project consists of 22 acres of housing opportunity. The complex boasts 84 units, an office, a coffee shop, walk paths, a covered picnic area, 2 outdoor fire pits, and a meal plan all within a gated community. There are 8 one-bedrooms, 4 three-bedrooms, and 52 two-bedroom apartments all with their own bathrooms. Every apartment has a porch, a full kitchen, a storage space, large closets, a washer and dryers, and stainless steel appliances.

Additionally, there is a 20-unit continued care building for our aging population to receive the specific services they need to continue to live with their friends as independently as possible. A Hall County Police Officer is also living on the property.
