Opening of Bayview Crossing Cheered in South Hero

State and local officials, affordable housing advocates, and area residents gathered in South Hero Monday, Nov. 14, to celebrate the opening of Bayview Crossing, a new Cathedral Square community with 30 homes for older adults and offices for the local nonprofit C.I.D.E.R. (Champlain Islanders Developing Essential Resources). It is the first affordable housing to be built in Grand Isle County in 17 years. Construction began in September 2021 and was completed in one year. All homes were leased by the time move-ins began last month, with nearly 100 households remaining on the wait list.

Cathedral Square Launches Memory Care Capital Campaign

With generous support from the families of Holly & Bob Miller and Lois & J. Warren (“Mac”) McClure, Cathedral Square has launched a $1 million capital campaign to ensure the future of Memory Care at Allen Brook, its Williston-based residence for very low-income Vermonters on Medicaid. It is the only truly affordable memory-care residence in Vermont, as it accepts people on Medicaid and with Section 8 rental subsidy at the time of admission. Private residential care in Vermont for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia typically costs $10,000 a month or more.

Celebrating the 'New' Whitney Hill Homestead in Williston

Residents, legislators, funders, policymakers and friends turned out in force in late June to celebrate the completion of major upgrades at Whitney Hill Homestead, a 30-year-old Cathedral Square housing community in Williston, Vermont. The year-long renovation required moving residents and their belongings out for six weeks at a time while work was completed in their part of the buildings. The improvements included upgrades to all major building systems, including an entirely new sprinkler system.
