This exciting project will serve as a prototype for independently owned, community based housing for Veteran populations.  Development of the first two sites, in Pittsfield and Leeds, Massachusetts, will be targeted to Veterans who have “graduated” from environments where a greater degree of support is required, and can function well in an environment which fosters greater autonomy and responsibility.

Cutting-edge energy technology, including active and passive solar technology and bio-fueled heating and electrical cogeneration equipment, will be incorporated in the prototype designs, creating communities that are sustainable and ecologically conscious.

Site and unit design address handicap and disability issues; grouping, proximity, and privacy; and the critical social needs of this growing population.
