Our first family has moved in and we are ready to provide assistance to other homeless families (meeting HUD’s definition). 114 Blake has six two-bedroom, two three-bedroom, and two one-bedroom apartments. Tenants will receive supportive housing services on site.
Tedford Housing was fortunate to receive assistance from the Lewiston Housing Authority, MaineHousing (Maine State Housing Authority) Lewiston-Auburn CDBG program, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston and Androscoggin Bank.
Meanwhile, the work continues at 22 Pine Street in Auburn as the old Franklin School starts to take shape as six one-bedroom units for homeless adults with a disability. Common Ties, a major provider of mental health services is partnering with Tedford Housing in the project and will offer comprehensive case management services to the tenants. YouthBuild, a U.S. Department of Labor program that provides training and construction employment opportunities to troubled young people, is also partnering in this project and provided essential labor to for demolition, drywall, and painting. Financing has been secured from HUD, MaineHousing, and the City of Auburn.
