New England’s First LGBTQ-Friendly Senior Housing Initiated by Kuehn Planning Grant

At INSITES this week, we highlight the adaptive reuse of a middle school in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood, which is on track to become New England’s first LGBTQ-friendly senior housing complex. A partnership between a non-profit LGBTQ Senior Housing Inc and Pennrose Development, this groundbreaking new project began with the support of a Kuehn Planning Grant, a program that CEDAC manages to help the non-profit community development sector across the Commonwealth.  The program was established in 2016 with funding from the Kuehn Charitable Foundation (KCF), with the goal of helping non-profits explore a project’s feasibility at the earliest stages of development.
