Easthampton, MA – This is the first of two reports about a new community in Easthampton, Massachusetts. It's called Treehouse, and the idea is to provide permanent homes for children in foster care, and help smooth the adoption process. And, there will be dozens of apartments for retired people-who can serve as mentors and surrogate grandparents. Treehouse held its grand opening on June 1st, and the first families are starting to move in. WAMC's Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Dan Bobkoff takes a look at this new development.
