682 N. Main Street, Brockton, MA
The ribbon cutting at Father Bill’s and MainSpring’s Montello Welcome Home Again affordable housing project in Brockton celebrated the completion of their fifth project entrusted to Curtis Construction in Father Bill’s and MainSpring’s commitment to provide permanent, supportive housing for the area’s homeless.
Elton Hampton Architects
Father Bill’s & MainSpring, a Brockton-based non-profit, purchased the former site of Catholic Charities and Phaneuf Hospital at 682 N. Main St., Brockton, across from their Jack Place and Patti’s House, a recent 20-unit affordable housing development that was also constructed by Curtis Construction.
Elton + Hampton Architects designed a three-story wood-frame building similar to the Jack’s Place design.
Curtis cleared the existing site to make way for the three-story building whose 23-units include one bedroom, a private bath, kitchen and living quarters, also provides tenants with a common laundry room and a meeting area. There are three ADA accessible units available for tenants with disabilities. Each unit was built with energy efficiency in mind, to reduce utility costs for tenants. Montello Welcome Home II is the second phase to Father Bill’s & MainSpring’s Jack’s Place/Patti’s House which provides 20 affordable housing units for homeless and veterans across the street.
