Originally Our Lady of Cedars Church, the church congregation relocated in 2005. In 2006, Families in Transition purchased the property. Families in Transition in partnership with Great Bridge Properties will undertake the renovations of the church and new construction of a 29 unit residential affordable housing complex. Renovations to the church will transform the lower level into offices for clinical and administrative use. The main floor of the church will be an expansion of the Family Outfitters Thrift store which is operated by Families in Transition. The original store is located at the Family Mill located on 394 Second Street in Manchester, NH. The Family Mill is another partnership with Families in Transition and Great Bridge Properties as the developer. Family Willows is scheduled for completion in the Spring of 2008.
