Message from the President
The expert care and quality programs offered by The Price Center are carefully designed to serve each client's preferences and needs. The individual is truly our focus. If our day habilitation, residential, employment or support services might help you or someone you care about, don't hesitate to contact us. We are eager to hear from you.
I am happy to say that by the time you read this, phase one of the renovations at our new Christina Street Building will be complete. Since my last update, The Price Center has moved all three of its day programs into our new building. No move is ever seamless, but at this point it looks like we have accomplished the move with a minimum of disruption. This is primarily due to the time staff spent anticipating potential problems and planning for the move.
As I have mentioned in previously, we are running a Capital Campaign to help us pay for the building. Click here to read more about the Capital Campaign and see our brochure. We are informing all the families of individuals we serve and other major supporters about the key naming opportunities available. There are a large variety of funding opportunities at many gift levels, and they are payable over a 3-5 year period. There are also opportunities to combine gifts from families and friends.
Our ability to bring in significant funding through this campaign will allow us over the long term to spend less on our facility costs and more on improving the services we can offer to individuals attending our programs. It will also make the Center more fiscally healthy over the long term. We already have about $1.5 million given and pledged to the campaign. We hope to raise $4 million total.
This is a transformative time at The Price Center, and the new facility will allow us to do much more to support the community. As a way to show the new building and make the community aware of the services The Price Center offers, we have scheduled an open house and Dedication Ceremony for Thursday, October 1st from 5:30 to 7:30 at 25-27 Christina St. In addition to the dedication there will be hors d’oeuvres and tours of the new facility. Click here to get more details and RSVP for the Dedication Ceremony.
We also will be having a family picnic on Saturday, October 3rd from 12 noon to 3 pm. Tours of the new building will also be given at this time. Please let everyone you think might be interested know about both events. Everyone is welcome.
Thanks for all your help,
