Solutions for Living opens location in Stoneham with Cummings Properties


WOBURN, MA – Solutions for Living, a provider of counseling and conflict resolution services, recently relocated to a 5,000-square-foot office at 92 Montvale Avenue. The nonprofit organization comes to Stoneham from its previous location at 200 Boston Avenue in Medford.

Both buildings are owned by Cummings Foundation and operated – for its sole benefit – by commercial real estate firm Cummings Properties.

Founded by Richard Bedine, Esq. in 1974 as Lynn Youth Resource Bureau, Solutions for Living provides a variety of therapeutic programs for a diverse population of adults, children, parents, and families. Its services include individual and family counseling, mentoring programs, and family and school mediation.

The business relationship between the Cummings organization and Solutions for Living extends back 20 years, according to Tony Spencer, Cummings Properties senior account manager. Spencer recently visited the Montvale Avenue office to present a personalized and engraved wooden captain’s chair in honor of Solutions for Living’s 20-year milestone.

The organization is also a two-time recipient of Cummings Foundation’s $100K for 100 grant program, which annually awards grants of $100,000 each to 100 nonprofits based in and serving communities in Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk counties.

“This giving program would not be possible without the more than 2,000 client firms like Solutions for Living that choose to locate their businesses within the Cummings portfolio,” said Spencer. “It’s a pleasure to have such a longstanding relationship with an organization as well-respected and impactful as this one.”
