THE ribbons have been cut on two new units for people in Bendigo who are living with special needs.
One of the homes has been designed with assistive technology features and can be further customised for future tenants.
Ann-Maree Davis, of Amicus, said the units were the result of great determination.
"It has been a major project and not without risk and challenges, including the supply difficulties of construction during a pandemic," she said.
"But the organisation remained steadfast to deliver a strategy firmly focused on addressing the community need."
When the National Disability Insurance Scheme began, there were more than 100 people in Bendigo who were on an urgent priority waiting list for specialist disability housing.
Bendigo MP Lisa Chesters, who helped open the buildings, said the project had been partially funded by a $300,000 bequest from the Gordon Webster Trust.
The first unit is built to offer a high standard of physical support, with assistive technology features.
The second unit is built to improved liveability standards, suitable for tenants who do not require full disability modifications.
Haven; Home, Safe - a homelessness organisation specialising in housing solutions - will manage the tenancy through its service.
