The Catherine Hardaway Residence was developed in 2011 by Central Boston Elder Services, Inc. These 57 units of supportive housing was our way of addressing the elder housing crisis. Our mission is to keep elders independent and aging in the communities they love. This Project is a remarkable accomplishment for our agency and continues our goal of assisting in the redevelopment of the Roxbury community.
