MAB Headquarters, 200 Ivy Street, Brookline MA

BOSTON — Rockland Trust has provided over $13 million in financing to MAB Community Services (MAB) to purchase sixteen group homes, which have been leased to house individuals MAB has served for as long as 18 years. MAB has a long-standing commitment of transforming the lives of those with disabilities. This transaction will enable MAB to control the costs associated with the vital services they deliver to their 80 residents.
