The Arc of Essex County’ property management team has been working diligently on three group home properties and all of their hard work has come to fruition.

The Washington group home underwent exterior and interior renovations, which made the house as a whole more accessible. An addition was added to the first floor to expand the shared space from four bedrooms to five. An accessible full bath was installed, as well as new flooring throughout. Exterior ramping was also added to the house to further enhance the accessibility of the home.

The Cedar Grove and Milburn group homes had similar interior and exterior renovations with greater accessibility and open floorplans in mind. Besides the ramping system and additional bedrooms and bathrooms, a new fire sprinkler system was installed in both houses.
