Bedford Veterans SRO

Using a $750,000 construction loan from Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation (MHIC), Caritas Communities, the largest owner of single room occupancy lodging houses in Boston, rehabilitated two floors in a building at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital to create 60 Single Room Occupancy (SRO) units affordable to the very low-income population. The units provide permanent housing and support services to homeless and disabled veterans. The project was made possible by a ground lease with the Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure long-term affordability for eligible veterans.
