Caritas Communities has over 20 years of experience creating and managing single room occupancy (SRO) housing. In 2006 we created Bedford Veterans quarters (BVQ) and began renovating a vacant building on the Bedford Veterans Hospital campus.
Completed in the summer of 2007, 60 homeless veterans now call BVQ their home. With on-site access to supportive services, BVQ is a major step towards self-sufficiency.
Each resident has his/her own room and shares communal areas: 3 kitchens and baths, lounges, laundry rooms, patio and full use of the attractive Bedford campus.
Bedford Veterans Housing –
A program for success:
• BVQ has Federal rental subsidy (Section 8) that guarantees affordable rents for all residents.
- • BVQ is managed under Caritas Communities’ professional property management program, including a live-in manager and on-site case management services.
- • Residents have full use of existing services at the Bedford campus, including medical care, recreational facilities and counseling.
(Bedford Veterans Quarters is a wholly owned subsidiary of Caritas Communities Inc., a nonprofit, nonsectarian developer and manager of rooming houses.)
