campus Redevelopment update FebRuary 2019
Last month, demolition of the Kirby building as well as our five small cabins and trailers from the 1960s and 1970s took place to make room for our new state of the art two-story Main Campus building.
Our Early Intervention Program staff and children have been enjoying their new space in the William T. Morris Cabin, which will be their home until January 2020. Thank you for your continued support as we Build for Tomorrow!
With a project cost of $18 million dollars, governmental support, foundation grants, and private philanthropy are critical to the success of our Jawonio Transformation Project. We held a public Groundbreaking Ceremony on November 15, 2017 hosted by our Jawonio Ambassador and Honorary Chair of the #JawonioBuilding4Tomorrow Capital Campaign, Janice Huff, Chief Meteorologist, WNBC4-NY.
More than 100 people attended the Groundbreaking event on our 16 acre grounds in New City, NY--including elected officials, community leaders and non-profit executives, who joined with our CEO Jill Warner, along with Jawonio Inc. and Foundation Boards, our consumers, and staff at the historic event.
Phase 1 of the project, the construction of the Summer Education Cabins, has officially been completed, and we celebrated at our Summer Education Cabin Celebration on July, 26th, 2018! The three cabins are for children with special needs who attend our 6 week Summer Education Program, and all cabins are outfitted as a multi-purpose space. The cabins will be used at other times of the year as well, for professional development, trainings, Board retreats, and other meetings. We also announced our public goal of $10,000,000 in philanthropy for the project as well. We are proud to inform you that we have already secured approximately $5,000,000 and climbing, which means we are halfway there.
The first phase of construction began in December, and our three new Cabins are officially complete and being used by campers, consumers, and staff! We are preparing the New City Rotary Path for "Camp Jawonio" (Summer Education Program) followed by the main campus facility construction with a target move-in date of end of 2019 or by Spring of 2020.
