TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pascua Yaqui Tribe broke ground Tuesday for a new men's and women's path homes and an assisted living home.

In total three homes will be built. The path homes will offer residential alcohol and drug treatment services.

The assisted living home will offer around the clock nursing care to people that need care, but not enough to be in a nursing home.

Interim Associate director of health Pascua Tribe Shanna Tautolo said "Its going to mean that tribal members can be on their path for healing and journey for health. These facilities will help sustain that journey."

The tribe hopes these three buildings will be finished by the end of this year.
