Whittier Street Project
Mobility Mentoring® services in Roxbury.
The low-income housing development on Whittier Street in Boston is undergoing a radical change for the better. EMPath has been tapped to provide its Mobility Mentoring services by the Boston Housing Authority and the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“A housing-based approach can transform a neighborhood.” – Judy Parks, Vice President of Mobility Mentoring Programs and Services
Located in Roxbury, the 200 unit complex will be razed over the next several years. In its place will be a new mixed-income housing community that provides homes to twice the number of families. EMPath’s team has already helped many families make progress in a range of areas.
Redevelopment in Roxbury
The transformation isn’t just about reforming a single housing complex, but about reforming an entire neighborhood.
