Roadway Apartments: Struggling Hotel Becomes Housing for People Experiencing Homelessness

Today, we highlight Father Bill’s & MainSpring’s (FBMS) innovative Roadway Apartments project, which has transformed an underused hotel in Brockton into 69 units of permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness. What began as an emergency measure to protect FBMS emergency shelter guests’ health is now an adaptive reuse success story that can serve as a national model for how to address homelessness. FBMS purchased the former Rodeway Inn last year using a $4.2 million CEDAC acquisition loan, and renovations are expected to be complete this spring. Learn more in this Planning Magazine article.
