Worcester Community Housing Resources (WCHR) will renovate an empty storefront at 795 Main Street. WCHR will lease the space to the Urban Missioner Program of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts for three years to run a community outreach center providing community activities and services. The income from the space will help stabilize the finances of two rooming houses operated by WCHR. The new programming will serve residents of the rooming houses and other families housed in WCHR apartments, as well as the Main South neighborhood.
