Mass. ROC upgrades community center with $2,000 BT Grant

Halifax Mobile Home Estates Association, Inc., in Halifax, Mass., is a 55 and older community with 430 homes that became a ROC in 2017. The co-op’s community center is equipped with a generator and has often provided a safe shelter in emergencies. Many other services are also held in the community center like monthly meetings for veterans and chair yoga for residents.
