Historical Perspective Boley was founded in 1970 as a 20-bed halfway house for men. In 1979, Pinellas County (primarily Boley) was chosen as one of three sites in the State to develop a deinstitutionalization project. As a result, Boley expanded from 31 to 200 beds. In 1984, Boley purchased its first residential facility. By 1994, all residential facilities had been converted from rental to agency-owned.
Historical Perspective In 1988, Boley received its first (of 10) HUD McKinney Act Homeless Grants. Also in 1988, Boley opened its first HUD 811 funded project - Bessie Boley and Ruth Mosher Apartments. Ten more followed, Two more are pending construction, and one was just awarded. Then in 1992, Boley initiated a Supported Housing Program.
