CRAWFORD STREET

 

 

Commonwealth Land Trust acquired Crawford Street in 1992. Crawford Street is a seventeen-unit single room occupancy property located on the border of Roxbury and Dorchester. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and residential, while still convenient to urban centers, shopping areas, and bus routes. Many units are reserved for formerly homeless and disabled individuals who receive on-site case management services.
