Muskegon, MI – July 23, 2018) – Pioneer Resources is pleased to announce the grand opening of their newest group home located on Mill Iron Road in Muskegon.

The Mill Iron Home was made possible through a competitive grant of the Affordable Housing Program offered by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis and made possible with a sponsorship from Community Shores Bank. In addition to the grant, Pioneer conducted a fundraising campaign titled “Help Us Make a House a Home” as the grant only funded a portion of the new construction, not the additional funding needed for landscaping, appliances, furniture, technology and more. Concept Design Studio Architects of Norton Shores and Muskegon Quality Builders helped to make Pioneer’s vision come to life.
