Since the business began, we have consistently recruited and hired individuals with backgrounds of homelessness, substance abuse and other significant sources of life disruption. We are pleased to offer these opportunities on the North Shore and close to Boston.” Since April 1, they have hired 66 people, of which more than 1 in 2 were from Lynn and 3 in 4 were from the North Shore

Lynnway Park is included in the City of Lynn’s Waterfront Master Plan.  Lynn Harbor Park, a 33-acre water-front park and recreation center is being built adjacent to Lynnway Park to the east and will be complete mid-2025.  A.W.
