Our New Building

 

Walnut Street Center is proud to announce that we will be moving into a new state of the art facility at 291 Mystic Avenue, Medford, MA. Our new building will house both our administrative offices and our Day Support Programs. This move will allow us to increase the number of individuals that we support and the types of services offered.

While we will continue to support the communities of Somerville, Cambridge and Arlington, the new building will also allow us to provide support to Medford and surrounding communities.

We expect to open the doors in the spring of 2017.
