NEW PORT RICHEY — Thousands of people in Florida don’t have a roof over their heads every night, but Youth and Family Alternatives started a project to help alleviate the homeless population in Pasco, especially for those on the service wait list for Florida’s Agency for Persons with Disabilities.

Youth and Family Alternatives is building new apartments for people with special needs and low-income families. On Nov. 2, the organization broke ground at the construction site that will become The Commons at Speer Village. It will be at 7349 Plathe Road, which is adjacent to the YFA administrative building and the youth shelter, called the RAP House.
