Nehemiah Homes and Family Life Center
Wednesday, March 6, 2019
The team at New Atlantic is proud and excited to announce a new partnership with the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Dorchester to develop affordable rental homes on land adjacent to the Church on Humboldt Avenue and Waumbeck Streets. The project will involve the demolition of the dilapidated building located at 157 Humboldt Avenue and the new construction of approximately 20 homes to be set aside for individuals and families earning below 60% and 30% of area median income. The project will also include a Family Life Center, which will provide supportive services to the residents of the property as well as the community. The goals for this project include the design and construction of an attractive and sustainable building that adds to the stability and character of the neighborhood; providing resources and support for the ongoing and future success of the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church and its congregants; maximizing participation by local minority and women-owned businesses; and the inclusion of services to support the needs of the residents and community.
