Confronting the Region’s Veterans’ Housing Needs
February 13, 2020

In response to the growing affordable housing crisis here in Massachusetts, JWA has slowly built up its housing chops by working on innovative projects with progressive non-profits and developers, including SHOP Development, LLC; Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity and DIAL/SELF.  This year we are pleased to continue this trend to the next level.  JWA has been awarded the role of lead designer on the proposed Winchendon Veterans Housing Project for the Montachusett Veterans Outreach Center.  In collaboration with Elton Hampton Architects, JWA is designing 35-45 single apartment units for the veterans of northern Worcester County.
