Groundbreaking Held for Housing, Resource Center

Father Bill’s & MainSpring staff break ground on the Yawkey Housing Resource Center.

Quincy, MA – Dellbrook|JKS celebrated the groundbreaking of a new housing and resource center for the charitable Father Bill’s & MainSpring, alongside The Narrow Gate Architecture, on Nov. 9.

The new Father Bill’s & MainSpring center will be constructed on what is currently a 50,000sf commercial lot. In partnership with the City of Quincy, this project will be completed in two phases, near the existing Father Bill’s & MainSpring facility on Broad Street. All operations will be relocated to this new facility and the current site will be transferred over to the City of Quincy.

Phase 1 includes the creation of a day center and shelter facility with associated staff offices, operations, dormitories, and medical clinic. Phase 2 includes the construction of 30 permanent shelter housing efficiency units, an outdoor courtyard area, and parking.

Dedicated to ending homelessness in Southern Massachusetts, Father Bill’s & MainSpring provides permanent supportive housing (PSH) for people in need. PSH includes housing assistance and supportive services to homeless individuals or families, especially those with disabilities.

Dellbrook|JKS anticipates the project’s completion by fall of 2023.

“We were delighted to join Father Bill’s & MainSpring for the groundbreaking of its new center. It’s evident that the project’s inception was a labor of love, and the opportunity to turn dreams into reality is special,” said Dellbrook|JKS senior superintendent, Robert Hanley. “We look forward to a careful and timely construction process, so that the community can quickly begin to utilize this important space.”
