Conceived in 1994 as a response to the growing problem of family homelessness, Bethany Hill Place has a dual focus on basic needs (affordable housing) and education. Our goal is to enable residents to attain greater self-sufficiency and independence within the context of each individual’s ability. We require involvement in education and/or training as a condition of residency. Our small staff offers meaningful in-house programming and support to enable residents to meet this requirement.
Bethany Hill Place is located in South Framingham, Massachusetts on a campus owned by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston. We are an affordable, educational housing development of 41 units in a mix of studio, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments for families and individuals in a beautiful, pastoral setting complete with parking, playground, and community gardens.

The success of the Bethany Hill Place model is our focus on work skills as well as foundational and life skills. Our goal is to enable residents to attain greater self sufficiency and independence within the context of each individual’s ability.
