July 20, 2016 – Representatives from Janey Construction joined Mayor Martin J. Walsh to celebrate the ground breaking for Freedom House’s new community center headquarters. The project transforms the single-story, 8,440 sf Grove Hall Library building at 5 Crawford Street in Dorchester with an interior fit-out including office, technology lab, and teaching spaces, as well as envelope and roof repairs to the existing structure. The new facility will meet LEED standards for certification including high energy efficiency systems and materials, resulting in significantly reduced operating costs. Freedom House is a non-profit organization that provides youth programs aimed at transforming the economic and cultural fabric of high-need communities through education and leadership development.

June 9, 2016 – More than 230 guests gathered at the historic Shirley-Eustis House in Roxbury to honor the contributions of Gregory Janey and David Lee. Against the backdrop of a beautiful 18th-century estate, community partners, local residents, and business leaders reaffirmed their commitment to building strong relationships, investing in affordable housing, and empowering communities. In a robust demonstration of partnership, supporters donated over $200,000 to Investing in Community, the most raised for an event in Dorchester Bay’s 37-year history.
