The Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community Opens Its Doors!

September 22, 2017

"On behalf of the City of Agawam, welcome home." -  James P. Cichetti,  Agawam City Council President

Visitors gathered at the Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community in Agawam to celebrate the  "End of Veteran Homelessness" where 51 veterans will soon call home.  

Soldier On, the Pittsfield-based nonprofit dedicated to ending veteran homelessness by providing permanent, supportive, sustainable housing, held a dedication ceremony Monday afternoon in light of the completed Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community facility. 

The former Western Massachusetts Regional Police Academy had been transformed into affordable housing, which includes 49 partially furnished units in the renovated academy and two units in a new annex to the building.

89 South Senior Living Community Pittsfield, MA.

Originally built in 1888 as the Berkshire County Home for Aged Women, the design entailed restoring and replicating prominent historic details, which pay homage to the Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, while incorporating a new transitional style that boasts the comforts of multifamily living in the modern age.  The program houses 18 residential units along with shared amenities including dining cafe, reading and fitness and educational uses.

We are all MAKERS with the power to build resilient communities.

Our team had a wonderful time participating in Yo-Yo Ma’s “Day of Action”, where teams of local businesses and organizations united under a single tent to build tables for the community.  The tables are made from local ash trees and inscribed with local responses that complete the phrase “The Berkshires make...”. #yoyoma #dayofaction #community #intheberkshires
