Breaking Ground: Freedom House Community Center HQ
July 20, 2016 –
Representatives from DREAM Collaborative and Janey Construction joined Mayor Martin J. Walsh to celebrate the ground breaking for Freedom House’s new community center headquarters. The project transforms the single-story, 8,440 sf Grove Hall Library building at 5 Crawford Street in Dorchester with an interior fit-out including office, technology lab, and teaching spaces, as well as envelope and roof repairs to the existing structure. The new facility will meet LEED standards for certification including high energy efficiency systems and materials, resulting in significantly reduced operating costs. Freedom House is a non-profit organization that provides youth programs aimed at transforming the economic and cultural fabric of high-need communities through education and leadership development.
