 Project Description

The Moltenbrey Apartments offer sober and substance-free living in downtown Turners Falls for individuals in recovery from alcohol and/or substance abuse. The historic property offers 26 single-room occupancy units with private kitchenettes and baths, a community kitchen, and a community living room. Second and third floor units are accessible by stairs and an elevator.

Basic eligibility for an apartment in the Moltenbrey is determined by income: applicants may make no more than 60% AMI (see Income Elibility Chart). Applicants must be committed to living in a sober and substance-free environment, and be actively working toward recovery with support from a contracted service provider (ServiceNet or DIAL/SELF). Please note that the maximum household size for tenancy at Moltenbrey apartments is one (1) household member.

Service Plan
To be considered for a room in the Moltenbrey, applicants must be firmly committed to a sober and substance-free life style. Each applicant must have a recovery service plan through ServiceNet or DIAL/SELF.

Waitlist Length
The Moltenbrey Apartments wait list depends largely on unit turnover. Usually, applicants wait 6 months to 1 year for a unit to become vacant although actual waiting times may be faster or slower depending on demand.
