A low-cost housing neighborhood with 37 homes is being planned by Turning Point Ministries to be built near Fretz Avenue and Edmond Road.

The housing addition on 8 acres, to be called Heritage Village, would be a home for single mothers, people with a need to be in Edmond and families with children with special needs.

Turning Point Ministries, a nonprofit organization, assists in the housing needs of people in Edmond living in substandard conditions, either by building a home or offering rental property.

It would be the second such neighborhood in Edmond. The first was Legacy Station, a partnership of Turning Point Ministries, Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity and the city of Edmond.

Eight of the 12 planned homes have been built in Legacy Station. Turning Point is getting ready to start two more homes. The homes are built by volunteers and donations.

Major fundraisers for Turning Point Ministries are the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot and annual golf tournament.

The lots in Heritage Village are 3,600 square feet to 7,240 square feet. Home will range in size from 600 square feet to 1,600 square feet.
