The Plan

This expansion will add 9,125 square feet to our current 17,750 square foot building at 59 Mill Street, with a two-story addition to the ground floor and a fourth floor added to the existent three-story structure. 


With the added space, we'll serve 2,500 more women and children each year and enhance programs and services (as described below).

  • We'll double the size of the childcare room to double the number of infants nurtured and allow more mothers to attend classes (since they'll have the childcare they need). We'll add a storefront boutique where women can get on-the-job training. We'll expand the lobby, so women won't have to wait outside for services.  

  • We'll add a large community room for job fairs, college fairs, children's physical fitness, and large group gatherings. We'll add a workshop space (for workshops such as financial literacy and domestic violence prevention), a resource room, and we'll improve the toddler room. 

  • We'll create a rooftop garden for outdoor classes and environmental education activities. A large volunteer hub will allow us to hold volunteer trainings and meetings.

  • We'll add classrooms to nearly double the number of children in our After-School Academy (from 124 to 220). With more classroom space, we'll increase the number of  English as a Second Language students. We'll gain office space for needed additional social workers.
