On May 12, 2017, the New England Center and Home for Veterans welcomed government partners, supporters, and friends into the newly reconstructed Center to mark the completion of the $35 million Permanent Supportive Housing Renovation and Construction Project. The ceremony included remarks from NECHV President and CEO Andy McCawley, Congressman Stephen F. Lynch, Governor Charles D. Baker, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Speaker of the House Robert A. DeLeo, and Senator Linda Dorcena Forry.
The project transformed the old building, which began life as a bank, into a sustainably updated, state-of-the-art service facility and home for Veterans in the Boston area. Key features of the project include:
- 37 new permanent apartments and 60 renovated existing units for Veterans
- New transitional housing for 180 Veterans, including a separate and secure female dormitory
- 65,000 square feet of newly renovated service spaces, including spaces for education and employment services, clinical services, housing services, and critical support
NECHV is proud to be able to offer robust support for Veterans in a new, updated space, and is incredibly grateful to all of our public and private partners who contributed to and made this project possible.
