The final phase of our Campaign for the Future is the renovation of our historic building at 66 Berkeley Street. Built in the late 19th century and acquired by Ellis in 1924, the building is a major asset which has been in continuous use for 90+ years for both our early education and school-age programming. It is now in need of significant repairs and upgrades. Due to their age, all major systems need to be replaced (HVAC, plumbing, electrical). An elevator needs to be installed to make it ADA compliant.
The goal of this project is to preserve and upgrade a key piece of real estate so that it meets its full potential as a program site, build capacity in high quality education and care for socio-economically disadvantaged children and youth, and enhance the program environment for all the children and youth we enroll, giving them a program site in which they can take pride.
