MassHousing Sober Living Grant
MassHousing, the state’s quasi-public organization responsible for financing affordable housing, announced the funds Friday. According to the report, over $630,000 in funding was issued.
According to Chrystal Kornegay, executive director of MassHousing, people in recovery from drug use have been disproportionately affected by the epidemic, and these awards will assist them in overcoming addiction.
The funding is made possible through the Center for Community Recovery Innovations, Inc., a nonprofit subsidiary of MassHousing that assists organizations in creating or preserving affordable sober homes for people in recovery in Massachusetts.
They were given to South Middlesex Non-Profit Housing Corporation in Worcester, Victory Programs, Inc. in Boston, Dismas House in Oakham, the Mental Health Association in Springfield, the Self Esteem Boston Educational Institute, the Allston-Brighton Community Development Corporation, Lowell House, Partners in Housing in Dartmouth, North Star Family Services in Leominster, and the Gandara Center in Springfield.
