Foster services nonprofit finds new home in Andover, leases 3,555 SF


ANDOVER, MA – Social services agency HopeWell has found a new home at 40 Shattuck Road in Andover, MA. The nonprofit organization recently signed a lease to relocate its Methuen office to the new 3,555-square-foot space in 2021.

HopeWell’s services include intensive foster care placements, programs for young adults transitioning out of foster care, and residential settings and support services for differently-abled adults. The Andover office will serve its northeast region, which includes Essex County and parts of Middlesex County.

The new location will be more convenient for HopeWell’s foster families, according to Shaheer Mustafa, president and CEO.

“Many of the parents live near Andover and choose medical and mental health providers in this area,” said Mustafa. “Being in such close proximity to their residences, downtown Andover, and a couple of major highways will make it easy for the families to connect with our team and join us for events.”

The new space will house about 15 employees. When the pandemic subsides, Hopewell will also use it for parent recruitment and training events.

“It’s a beautiful space, and we’re happy to be partnering with an organization like Cummings that is so connected to, and supportive of, the local community,” said Mustafa.

Cummings Properties leasing director Mike Truesdale worked with a broker to secure the lease for Hopwell.

“We are always happy to work with a not-for-profit to identify a space that meets its needs,” said Truesdale. “Given 40 Shattuck’s upscale environment, complimentary fitness room, and micro-market, we are confident that Hopewell’s team members will enjoy their new office.”

Situated 20 miles north of Boston, directly off I-93 and just north of I-495, 40 Shattuck Road is located in Andover’s business district, across from Minuteman Park. The glass-and-brick office building offers 120,000 square feet of office and lab space.
