After several years of hard work from many determined individuals and partner organizations, construction at FORWARD at the Rock is now finished, on-time and on-budget! The project provides affordable and supportive housing where residents can thrive in a setting that’s safe, healthy, and accessible. The duplex features two side-by-side houses providing a lifelong home for 8 adults with autism and related disabilities, with around-the-clock staffing in each house. The first eight residents – four men and four women – have now settled into their cozy state-of-the-art new forever homes. The project grew out of a partnership between FORWARD, the Town of Dennis, the Housing Assistance Corporation and the Department of Developmental Services, and eventually was supported by 5 additional towns — Barnstable, Yarmouth, Brewster, Chatham and Mashpee, along with the Department of Housing and Community Development, CEDAC, BlueHub Capital, and local businesses, foundations and hundreds of caring members of our local community. THANK YOU!
We have now embarked on the planning for our next affordable housing project for adults with developmental disabilities, and we ask that you support us in our effort to address the massive shortage of appropriate and affordable housing for these vulnerable members of our community.
