West Caldwell Group Home Gets Makeover

July 25th, 2017

As part of The Arc of Essex County’s ongoing capital improvement plan, the agency’s West Caldwell group home recently received a curb appeal facelift.  Originally acquired in 1995, the exterior of the Beechtree Road property received a complete fresh coat of paint utilizing funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program.

Improvements at the group home will continue with interior renovations including kitchen upgrades, bedroom and bathroom remodels, flooring replacement, and HVAC improvements.  These projects, expected to begin in the fall, are made possible by reserve and replacement funds also available from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program.
