New Queen City building for veterans aims at July 1 for first residents
Harbor Homes hosted an official ribbon-cutting ceremony last week for the BAE Systems Independence Hall at 335 Somerville St.
"We try to assist any way possible to get them back on their feet so that they can become independent," said Jean Melvin, program manager for Independence Hall.
Construction on the building began last June and was completed in less than a year.
The ceremonial opening was last Friday, when Mayor Ted Gatsas and BAE Systems representatives were among the dignitaries gathered for the cutting of the ribbon.
"It was touching them. You could see how people were nodding their heads and acknowledging. I think it impacted the crowd," she said. "It just kind of opens your eyes to the challenges and experience when they get back."
Because it's a brand-new facility, there are a few matters still to be finalized before the facility can start taking in residents.
