Rockland — After more than two years of planning and construction, the Coastal Opportunities group home in Rockland is ready to welcome residents.

The new group home is located at 190 Limerock St., Rockland (behind the Rockland Congregational Church.)

An open house for the community will be held Saturday, Dec. 7, from 1 to 3 p.m. The dedication and ribbon-cutting will occur at 2 p.m., and refreshments will be served.

Designed by Christopher Glass of Camden and built by McCormick & Associates, the building is a state-of-the-art replacement for the 31-year-old Katherine Brown Home in Hope.

This new intermediate-care facility provides an intensive degree of assisted living for up to eight residents who use wheelchairs, Coastal Opportunities stated in a news release. With geothermal heating and private rooms, the home will allow these residents to achieve as much self-determination and independence as possible and to become involved in their new community, according to the organization.

The approximately 8,900-square-foot complex cost about $2.2 million.

For further information, contact Coastal Opportunities, at 236-6008.
