Winter Grove is a HUD Section 202 financing project with additional funding from the State of Connecticut Department of Housing. This new construction project is comprised of 40 units for senior residents. A ribbon cutting was celebrated on April 1, 2015 and we are happy to announce that leases have begun as of May 1, 2015. Pictured below is the front entrance of the complex as well as NWNH President Ed Seibert, Suzanne Piacentini (HUD), Gary Brumback (Town of Southington), NWNH Executive Director Seila Mosquera, Congressman John Larson, and Evonne Klein (CT-DOH).
We also recently held our ribbon cutting ceremony for our Gaffney Place revitalization project in Waterbury CT.
