Building with a Mission

The Campaign for the Elizabeth Stone House

After forty years of service, the Elizabeth Stone House needs an integrated, supportive housing and community-based service complex for the individuals, families and neighborhoods we serve. The Elizabeth Stone House currently serves 500 homeless or at-risk individuals each year, an increasing number that still does not meet  community demand.  A new Stone House will almost double the number of at-risk families housed and quadruple the number of neighborhood families helped.

This project will cost $23,000,000.
We are assembling $22,000,000 in financing using tax credits, public grants from local, state, and federal sources, real estate equity and private donations.

That leaves less than a million where we need your help. You hold the key to transforming thousands of lives. Your donation will help us break ground soon.

Make a pledge today.

A new home means:

  • Accessible, affordable housing with support services for all residents.
  • Greatly expanded access to support groups, classes, education and job training resources for both residents and community-based clients
  • Appropriate space and high-quality care for traumatized children
  • Interim childcare for families waiting for full-time openings

The chart below illustrates how the new Elizabeth Stone House will be able to increase the number of clients we currently serve.
