Bradley Company Celebrates Grand Opening of Serenity Place

Thursday, March 10 – Bradley Company, Garden Court Apartments, and R. Yoder Construction celebrated the grand opening of Saint Katharina Kasper Serenity Place, a Garden Court Property, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Serenity Place is a new permanent supportive housing property in Plymouth, Indiana, and is the 13th Garden Court project. Bradley Company has been working with Garden Court on property management since 1978.
Serenity Place, a Garden Courts property, offers affordable housing to low-income families

Serenity Place, an affordable, low-income apartment complex, was created to combat homelessness in Marshall County, and has been an ongoing project for several years.[1] It was a real team effort to get the property ready for the grand opening and ultimately, for lease-up. Not only did Holly Richwalski, Senior Property Manager, and Alonda Jenkins, Regional Property Manager, spend time acquiring start-up household goods for the previously homeless residents, but the entire Garden Court team jumped in and spent a full day cleaning and putting furniture together for the grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Holly Richwalski went above and beyond the call of duty, sending out over 120 letters to local business asking for furniture donations for residents. She purchased and put together a welcome basket for every apartment, containing household essentials such as bowls, plates, pots, pans, soap, silverware, cleaning materials, and more.

“Whether it’s working with contractors to make sure the property has phones and internet, installing furniture, or reviewing last minute operational details, the Garden Court team has really put in the extra effort so that Serenity Place will have a successful opening. These collaborative efforts strike at one of Bradley Company’s core values. Great job, team.” reflects Rod Ludwig, Senior Managing Director of Multi-Housing.

Thank you to our Garden Court team for their efforts, as well as all others involved, for making this grand opening so successful!
