In 2018, the BBH team has been focused on five specific initiatives that will support BBH’s growth and expand our impact on the housing crisis.

2018 Fundraising Campaign Kickoff
1. Construction planning for our new developments in Sudbury and Swampscott.
Permits have been received for both The Senior Residences at Machon, in Swampscott, and The Coolidge at Sudbury, Phase 2! But there is still a lot of work to be done before entering the construction phase. Building quality housing that is affordable is time-intensive and support from our generous donors is critical to bring these developments to fruition.
2. Pursue the designation to redevelop the Patricia White Apartments in Brighton.
Our work over the last two years providing services to the residents of the Patricia White Apartments—a Boston Housing Authority property located next door to BBH’s Covenant House—has been extremely well-received and we are very excited that the BHA has now prioritized the redevelopment of this property! The RFP will be out soon and revenue we raise through the 2018 Campaign is urgently needed to help us create and submit the strongest proposal possible!
3. Expansion of our Gen2Gen program for emerging leaders.
Our steering committee is eager to grow Gen2Gen into a year-round, citywide coalition and plans to double programming in 2018 to engage with a wide breadth of affordable housing advocates and thought leaders. 2018 Campaign Funds will ensure members of our Gen2Gen program can continue to educate and encourage dialogue about important housing and urban issues.
4. A comprehensive and strategic media and outreach plan.
As leaders in finding solutions to affordable housing’s biggest challenges, we need to do a better job sharing our expertise, leading the conversation on innovation, and advocating for smart, thoughtful housing policy. Make a positive impact when you invest in a strong media and outreach plan that will both enrich the affordable housing sector and support BBH’s growth.
5. Addressing the critical need for affordable housing in additional high cost markets.
One of BBH’s strategic planning goals is to expand into other cities and towns and share our expertise and award-winning housing models with the areas that need it most. Help us make this goal a reality! When you support BBH, you provide the time and staff we need to build new relationships and explore opportunities.
Together We Can:
build strong diverse communities, ease the housing crisis for seniors, individuals and families and, lead the region in innovation and award-winning developments.
