Funding will benefit sober programs in Brockton, Lowell, Springfield and Worcester
BOSTON, MA – November 22, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — MassHousing has awarded $300,000 in financing to help create or preserve dable sober housing in Brockton, Lowell, Springfield and Worcester.
The MassHousing grants will come from the Center for Community Recovery Innovations, Inc. (CCRI), a nonprofit subsidiary corporation of MassHousing that creates and preserves affordable sober housing in Massachusetts for recovering substance abusers. CCRI to date has awarded nearly $6 million in grants for more than 1,400 units of substance-free housing in more than 30 communities for men, women, families, veterans, the homeless and ex-offenders.
“Having an affordable place to live in a sober setting is critical for people trying to overcome substance abuse,’’ said MassHousing Executive Director Thomas R. Gleason. “By helping to provide the resources they need to overcome addiction, these men and women can return as healthy and productive members of our Commonwealth.’’
