MOVING RIGHT ALONG ON HARBOR VILLAGE!
More affordable housing will soon become a reality for downtown Gloucester.
In addition to the 30 rental units, there will also be approx. 2,000 sqft of retail space on the ground floor. A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved, including the MA Dept. of Housing & Community Development, the City of Gloucester & Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, our partners at North Shore Community Development Coalition, our architects at Icon Architecture, and our contractors at Groom Construction.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND
We asked for help with weekend meals at the shelter, and our community took action! We’ve had support and delicious dinners provided by Atlantic Vacation Homes, Groom Construction, The Emerson Inn, We Are All In This This Together Gloucester FB page (which includes Awesome Gloucester, Rockport Mortgage, & many individuals), the Cape Ann Referral Group, and several others. Thanks for letting our shelter guests and staff know that our community really cares about them. The Action Inc. Board of Directors donated this beautiful steak tip dinner (in the picture above) from The Causeway Restaurant.
