Constellation Cooperative Housing

success-stories-constellation-cooperative-housingIn April 2012, a parent group approached us with a novel concept: a desire to purchase a five-bedroom residence for their adult children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the greater Boston area by creating a co-op model.

This approach accomplishes three things: (1) their children will live in the community, (2) the parents will control the services being provided in the home and (3) the model is a new way to create long-term affordable housing.

Hence, Constellation Cooperative Housing was born. We provided $225,000 in acquisition and renovation financing to purchase and upgrade the residence, which was opened in October 2012!
