MILWAUKEE -- A new housing complex for families in need is ready for new residents.

Tuesday is the grand opening of Maskani Place, a 37-unit, $10 million housing community for Milwaukee families that were previously living in shelters, homeless or at risk of homelessness.

"Heartland Housing" built the affordable housing complex near the intersection of Center and Buffum Streets on Milwaukee's north side.

In addition to providing stable housing, it will offer residents assistance with employment training and job searches, finding childcare, and developing financial literacy.
