FRAMINGHAM – “I hope the new Framingham home will serve you well,” said Framingham City Council Chair Dennis Giombetti.
A ribbon cutting ceremony featuring Senate President Karen Spilka was held for Serenity House at 228 Concord Street in downtown Framingham on Wednesday morning.
Serenity House is one of the longest-running programs operated by South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC).
For more than two decades, the program that helps women dealing with addiction and mental illness was located in a quiet Hopkinton neighborhood. Serenity House had to leave that well-loved location when Eversource was required by the federal government to leave all abutting areas vacant.
“On a personal note, I am very pleased your new home is in this very building,” said Giombetti about the former nursing home, as he re-told a very personal, and emotional story.
