FORWARD at the Rock

FORWARD at the Rock, Dennis, MA


Cape Associates is honored to be working with Forward Cape Cod on their project to bring 8 affordable apartments for adults with autism & related disabilities to the town of Dennis. The project is a culmination of years of dedication and hard work by many organizations and individuals.  We’re inspired by the collaboration and to see what can be accomplished with passion and persistence--thank you for choosing Cape Associates as your building partner! To learn more about FORWARD’s mission visit:

From the FORWARD website: FORWARD and its partners - the Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC) and the Town of Dennis,  have the opportunity to create a residential community development that will provide a much higher standard of living for individuals on the autism spectrum - without being cost prohibitive.

Located in Dennis, MA at the heart of Cape Cod, the FORWARD at the Rock property is situated on a peaceful wooded site on Hokum Rock Road - approximately one mile from the Village of Dennis and nearby to many local amenities. In addition to the housing, plans include the creation of public walking trails and gardens on the adjacent 10 acres of Town owned property.

Each Cape Cod styled duplex will consist of two four-bedroom homes (8 units) - the two buildings connected by a walkway. Each individual unit will qualify as affordable housing to individuals earning below 60% of the Median Income (AMI) for Barnstable County, MA. Each individual home will provide four single bedrooms with private and semi-private bathrooms, a common kitchen, living and recreation areas as well as a small workspace for staff, and an additional common bathroom for staff and visitors.

We are honored to have been awarded a silver BRAGB Prism Award for Best Mixed-Use Community Development for this project.
