Webster Street House
CAN-DO renovated an existing house and constructed a three bedroom addition on Webster Street in Auburndale to provide affordable housing for six adults with developmental disabilities. CAN-DO's partner in this project is the Newton Wellesley Weston Committee for Community Living, Inc. which provides staffing and supportive services.

Three of the six bedrooms and a bath are handicapped-accessible, with 24-hour staff supervision on site.

CAN-DO broke ground for the Webster Street House on December 19, 2001 and held a ribbon cutting ceremony with friends and supporters on September 26, 2002
