Changing the lives of people whose lives have been changed by brain injury and cognitive/neurological disorders.
Old Farm Rockport (OFR) is a new independent affordable housing facility for survivors of brain injury and cognitive/neurological disorders.
Located in Rockport, Massachusetts, OFR is a renovation of the Old Farm Inn at Halibut Point. OFR's main building, Norwood House, has four accessible bedrooms offering a home-like environment on the main floor. The adjacent building, Murphy House, has two accessible studio apartments on the main floor. Both buildings have a completely separate one-bedroom apartment on the second floor. Residents began moving into OFR
in early 2014.
The property was transformed in a collaborative effort led by Old Farm Rockport, a non-profit organization formed by a group of North Shore families and friends of individuals who have been touched by the catastrophic effects of a brain injury and cognitive/neurological disorders. In addition to Old Farm Rockport, Supportive Living, Inc., an award-winning developer of independent housing for brain injury survivors, and Advocates, Inc., a provider of health care services for adults with multiple disabilities, provided their unique abilities in this effort.
