On Veteran’s Day in 2013 and throughout that year, CEDAC highlighted the funding commitments we had recently made to a number of organizations helping homeless veterans, including the support we gave to Father Bill’s & MainSpring to develop the Montello Welcome Home project. The Brockton-based organization has worked hard to help end homelessness among veterans in the area, and it was our pleasure to provide capital funding through the Housing Innovations Fund to this supportive housing project so that the area’s veterans would have both the housing and services they need.
So we were gratified to join Father Bill’s & MainSpring just a few weeks ago to celebrate the ribbon-cutting for the second phase of this project, Montello Welcome Home Again. In honor of Veteran’s Day, we wanted to share that celebration with you, too. The $5 million development brings 23 new units of permanent supportive housing to the South Shore, 12 of which are set aside for veterans. CEDAC is honored to work with organizations like Father Bill’s & MainSpring, Soldier On, the New England Home and Center for Veterans, and others who continue to support and expand housing opportunities for our nation’s veterans.
