NEWPRO is providing “windows” of opportunity for The Home for Little Wanderers’ new Roxbury Village program by donating a houseful of windows. Roxbury Village is an innovative program that will serve young adults in Boston age 18-22 who are about to emancipate from state systems of care, as well as those who were discharged from care and are currently homeless.
“The Home for Little Wanderers is proud to be able to expand our services to a population that really needs it,” said Joan Wallace-Benjamin, President and CEO, The Home for Little Wanderers. “The support of Roxbury Village through companies like NEWPRO will allow us to provide stable housing as well as intensive services including support and community connections to build the resources and skills these young people need to become self-sufficient, productive adults.”
Roxbury Village is housed in a foreclosed property recently acquired by Developer L. Duane Jackson of Alinea Capital Partners LLC. Acquisition and renovation funding was received from the City of Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development, the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development Neighborhood Stabilization Funds and private funds.
“NEWPRO is proud to support The Home for Little Wanderers’ Roxbury Village as part of our giving back to the community initiative. Our donation of replacements for the property’s 40 windows will help transform it into a home for the program’s young adults,” stated Nicholas Cogliani, owner and president of NEWPRO. In addition, NEWPRO’s replacement windows will help reduce energy waste with superior energy efficient engineering and construction. That means warm in the winter and cool in the summer comfort!
