An interview with Jane Ralph, executive director of Construct Inc., easing the challenges of homelessness

Friday, Feb 2 | By Rita Dichele

I had the pleasure to interview Jane Ralph, executive director of Construct Inc. in Great Barrington. As a former resident of Construct’s Women in Transitional Housing, it was especially welcoming to get to know Jane better.

Construct’s mission

Construct is known in the community for providing emergency transitional housing to those individuals who are homeless. They also offer affordable housing for families and individuals and long-term communal living. Since 1995 Construct has developed 80 housing units in South County. They are in the process of building Forest Springs, an 11-apartment community on Stockbridge Road which will have full occupancy by April 2018.
