Governor Baker Announces Funding for Harmon Apartments
At a press conference on a steamy August afternoon, Governor Baker announced a funding award for Harmon Apartments along with 22 other affordable housing developments in Massachusetts. Governor Baker said that “these affordable housing awards reflect our administration’s commitment to a stronger, more prosperous, and more inclusive Commonwealth.” TBH Board of Trustees Chairman Randy Hawthorne expressed his gratitude to the Baker administration for the award for Harmon Apartments that will offer individuals and families a specialized package of services and accommodations that support independence and full engagement in the community for people with disabilities.
Harmon Apartments is designed and developed in partnership between The Boston Home and Affirmative Investments. All 36 apartments will be handicap accessible with specialized technology that will allow tenants to live independently. Harmon Apartments will be located at 2045 Dorchester Avenue. The Boston Home was founded in 1881 by Cordelia Harmon who successfully advocated for housing for adults and children with disabilities. The location of Harmon Apartments is very close to the original building.
Updates will be provided as we move closer to construction and finally occupancy.
