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 has cost $24,000,000 so far – much of this assembled using tax credits, public grants from local, state, and federal sources, real estate equity and private donations.
We are close to completion on this transformational construction project at One Westminster, Roxbury, and expect to welcome resident domestic violence survivors to this new space by January 1, 2021.
We still need you to make this new Stone House a true “home” with furnishings, artwork and operational funding. Your donation will help us welcome and serve residential and community clients in 32 new units of safe, affordable housing, a full licensed daycare center and as a hub for counseling and other resources.
A new home means:
- Accessible, affordable housing with on-site and remote domestic violence counseling and life skills support services for all residents.
- Greatly expanded access in person and via remote technology to support groups, safety planning, trauma-informed counseling, life skills classes and 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
