YouthBuild Boston students and staff were honored to serve alongside volunteers from Baker Newman Noyes for the first time on Friday, October 21st. As the service recipient for the day, local nonprofit organization, Brookview House, received a major facelift that included new planters and landscaping, picnic tables, shelving, and winterization.
Since 1990, Brookview House has been helping homeless and at risk families learn the skills to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Their housing opportunities and programming around the achievement of personal and economic self-sufficiency have enabled hundreds of clients to completely transform their lives for the better. YBB and Baker Newman Noyes were thrilled to give Brookview House a transformation of its own at this month’s service day. Thank you Brookview House for all that you do, and thanks to our new corporate partner, Baker Newman Noyes for a great day of service!
