The Greenfield Recorder reported last week on Clinical & Support Options’ leading a “$23M expansion of housing, homeless services in Greenfield.”

As the article reported:

The nonprofit was recently tapped by the state Department of Housing and Community Development to provide emergency shelter services to homeless adults starting in April 2023 and administrators are planning for a dramatic $23 million transformation of the existing emergency shelter at 60 Wells St. The agency’s proposed design includes a renovation of the existing building, expanding shelter capacity from 30 to 40, and construction of a new three-story building that will hold 36 studio apartments…

CSO plans to install an integrated model of shelter and housing services, one that includes on-site nursing, on-site behavioral health clinicians and access to a host of individualized supports. Geoffrey Oldmixon, CSO’s vice president of marketing and development, said this model has achieved great success in Springfield, where CSO accommodates 1,000 homeless adults each year as part of CSO’s Friends of the Homeless program.

CSO is partnering with Rural Development Inc., the non-profit affordable housing development arm of the Turners Falls-based Franklin County Regional Housing & Redevelopment Authority, to bring this to fruition.
