For a Community Residence for women in Brentwood, NY A winning team: DASNY and H2M celebrate groundbreaking


the support of the community behind the use of this build- ing, to help better the lives of those who need the help. When guest speaker Maggie finished her personal story, you knew she touched the entire room.” added Nally. “When everyone gave her a standing ovation, it brought tears to my eyes. I am glad to be a part of a project which is going to better the lives and even save the lives of hundreds of women in Suffolk County.” A new community residence provides a temporary home for women who are unable to maintain a stable residence

as a result of issues such as poverty, mental illness, and domestic violence. In order for many of these women to become self-sufficient, they need a home with a safe and supportive living environment. Residents of the home live in a supervised, safe, and sup- portive environment to help overcome previous troubles in their lives. The residence will give the women an opportunity to acquire new skills necessary to live as independently as pos- sible. H2M is proud to work on a project that will have a huge positive impact on Suf- folk County and Long Island. n
