News at NECHV

The final piece of the Permanent Supportive Housing and Recapitalization Project is in place.

For almost three years, the New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) has been undergoing extensive renovations as part of the Permanent Supportive Housing and Recapitalization Project to update the 110 year-old 10-story building in order to better serve Veterans. The project has added 37 new permanent apartments and renovated 60 existing units, renovated transitional housing for 180 Veterans, including a separate and secure female dormitory, and updated 65,000 square feet of service spaces for education and employment services, clinical services, housing services, and critical support. In May of 2017, the Center held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the updated facilities.

Last month, the NECHV was granted the final Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Boston. This important milestone marks the completion of construction and certifies that the building and its systems meet all safety and service standards. With the completion of the project, the vision of an enduring resource for Veterans, located in the heart of Boston, has become reality and we look forward to serving Veterans every day in our new facility for many years to come.
