Jeffrey A. Raday, PE, President of McShane Construction Company, is proud to announce the completion of its newest nonprofit supportive housing project. New Moms, with an existing location in Chicago, added a new facility in Oak Park, Illinois. A ribbon cutting ceremony and open house was held on Friday, March 15th to celebrate the opening of the brand new facility. Located at 206 Chicago Avenue, in-between Ridgeland and Austin Avenue, the new facility offers comprehensive support services to young moms and their children experiencing poverty and homelessness. New Moms interrupts the cycle of generational poverty and creates strong families by providing stable housing, job training and family support.
The four-story, 21,700-square-foot building includes 18 apartment units comprised of one- and two- bedroom options to accommodate various sized families with private entrances for residents. In addition to the units, the first floor includes new office space for New Moms employees, a playroom which hosts childcare during parent programming, and a community room where parenting education and workshops take place.
“This supportive housing project has been both exciting and unique,” remarked David Rintz, McShane Vice President. “We were fortunate to work with an awesome team to provide young mothers a safe and stable environment to live in.”
The architectural services were provided by McBride Kelley Baurer Architects/Planners. For more information about New Moms Oak Park Supportive Housing, please visit www.newmoms.org.
