Congregate Housing
Congregate Housing is a shared living environment designed to integrate the housing and service needs of income-eligible elders and younger disabled individuals. Residents have their own room and share the common areas of a house. Individuals in need of 24 hours, 7 days a week supervision are not appropriate for congregate housing. Locally, there are two sites managed by Newton and Waltham Housing Authorities in conjunction with Springwell. Springwell coordinates support services and placement for elder residents. Call Springwell at (617) 926-4100 for more information.

The Supportive Housing Initiative was developed by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Department of Housing & Community Development, to create an assisted living like environment in State-funded elderly / disabled public housing. Watertown Housing Authority participates in this program, which is available at Woodland Towers and is administered by Springwell.
