On March 23, nearly 70 Jeremiah families, advisory board members, community partners, volunteers, and supporters took time to welcome Jeremiah-Endicott to its new home in Dudley Square in Roxbury, MA.
Guests heard from Erin, a single mother of two who talked about the impact Jeremiah has had on her and her children’s lives. Dr. Richard Wylie, President of Endicott College, addressed the group and announced a gift of $25,000 from Endicott College to help support the pilot.
The night before, new and old friends joined Jeremiah’s visionary founder, Michael J. O’Connell, and President & CEO Gloria Perez at a private reception in downtown Boston to hear the story of Jeremiah’s origins and to discuss the importance of finding local support for the Boston pilot.
