After being at risk for losing its affordable housing status, Brandy Hill Apartments hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday to celebrate the preservation of 132 units and a massive renovation of the complex.

“It’s beautiful now,” said Donna Hodson, a resident for 28 years. “We are so blessed and thrilled beyond measures with all the changes.”

Hodson, along with state housing officials, Congressman Bill Keating (D-Hyannis), State Rep. Susan Williams Gifford (R-Wareham), State Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton) and Aaron Gornstein, president and CEO of Preservation of Affordable Housing, spoke at the event.
