It was getting a little crowded.

As published in the Old Colony Memorial Newspaper, March 9, 2016 by Emily Clark

With 235 employees, Old Colony Elder Services’ headquarters in Brockton was getting a tad cramped.

That’s why this nonprofit, which services the needs of elders and individuals with disabilities across 23 South Shore communities, has expanded, with offices in Plymouth now at 204 South Meadow Road.

Old Colony Elder Services hosted an open house Wednesday, March 2, sharing refreshments and chit-chat with visitors who roamed the 7,200-square-foot new facility, appreciating the new cubicles, rugs, fresh paint and meeting rooms. Read more.
