Community Meeting on Proposal for a Family Shelter

September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join FamilyAid, State officials, and City leaders and staff for a community meeting to hear more about plans to create a Family Navigation Center with 42 units of transitional housing in Newton.

FamilyAid, with State support, plans to rehabilitate the former Chetwynde Nursing Home at 1650 Washington Street into a long-term space offering housing and services for families experiencing homelessness. FamilyAid staff would be on-site 24/7 to assist residents. While a family will only live at the property for about a year, FamilyAid is leasing the building for 55 years and thus expects to operate the family shelter permanently. The target opening date is February 1, 2024.

This community meeting will be an opportunity for everyone to ask questions. It will also serve as the City’s “administrative site plan review” community meeting to hear comments about the proposed use.
