Maine condo conversion project gets under way

SOUTH PORTLAND — Construction has started on a commercial building in the Knightville neighborhood that’s being converted to condominiums for adults with developmental disabilities.

The three-story, 6,000-square-foot building on E Street has enough space for nine units, including two for live-in staff members.

Anna Bulger, 21, of Cape Elizabeth plans to live there. Bulger has autism. Her mother, Mary Chris Bulger, said she bought the building to give her daughter a sense of pride and independence.

Adults with autism find alternative housing

Just outside of Oxford is a new kind of farm, the kind where adults with autism in Butler County can live and receive alternative care.

Safe Havens Farms, a piece of property about 15 miles from Oxford in Madison Twp., is the eighth farm-style home in the country that will provide new options and activities for adults with autism.
