This is a film about the Robert L. Beilman House on Madison's Northside. Completed in 2005, it houses the offices for Housing Initiatives, Inc. as well as nine apartment units for HII Clients. Since 1993, Housing Initiatives has provided housing for homeless persons with severe mental illnesses.
This film was made as part of the HOME Program 20th Anniversary Conference by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD awarded the Beilman House project one of five "Door Knocker Awards" for "Promoting Long-Term Affordability".
The Beilman House was developed in part by using HOME Program funds allocated by the City of Madison Community Development Block Grant department. For more information on Housing Initiatives, you can check out our web site at housinginit.org.
