Opening of J.J. Carroll House redevelopment makes headlines

J.J. Carroll ribbon cutting Pressley

We are still reeling with excitement and joy from the March 18 ribbon-cutting celebration for the new J.J. Carroll House in Brighton!

Reporters and camera crews were on hand to document the momentous occasion, with media coverage highlighting the partnership between 2Life Communities and the Boston Housing Authority that brought this project to fruition, as well as the impact that public-private partnerships can have on modernizing and increasing affordable housing throughout the Commonwealth.  

More than 200 attendees heard powerful remarks from J.J. Carroll House residents, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, Boston City Council President Ruthzee Louijeune, and other elected officials and policymakers. A central theme is how 2Life leads the way in not only tackling the state’s housing shortage but also meaningfully responding to the unique needs of older adults in Massachusetts by creating vibrant, connected, and adaptive communities that combat the two greatest threats to aging: loneliness and affordability.
