From Newton Thompson of the Affordable Housing Trust –
The Medfield Affordable Housing Trust was created by Town Meeting approval in 2017 for the purpose of preserving and creating affordable and community housing in the Town of Medfield for the benefit of low and moderate income households.
To that end, one of the Trust’s outstanding goals is to foster and support the creation of housing for local adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities (DD/IDD). To help achieve that goal, the Trust members have recently engaged a consultant, Cathy Boyle, President of Autism Housing Pathways, to advise the Trust on the level of need and interest for such housing in the Medfield area.
In order to determine local need and interest, a survey has been prepared by Autism Housing Pathways (“AHP”). If you have interest in such housing in the next few years, please contact Cathy Boyle at AHPhousing@comcast.net by November 11th for access to the survey.
Based on the survey response, the consultant will conduct up to 3 respondent focus groups (which may be done virtually) to discuss housing options.
We greatly appreciate your help in this important Town initiative.
