Golda Meir House

Golda Meir House is one of several properties managed by the Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly (JCHE). This 199-unit building located in Auburndale is welcoming to independent seniors of all backgrounds, with over 85% of the units reserved as low-income housing. Residents enjoy fully equipped apartments with full kitchens, as well as attractive and inviting common space, courtyards and grounds. Golda Meir House offers social, cultural and recreational programs that facilitate healthy aging. The 235 residents of Golda Meir House have the opportunity to form relationships, engage in lifelong interests, and explore new ones. In any given day residents may be learning Spanish, writing poetry with support from a college professor, participating in a fashion show to raise money for the children of Darfur, and tending to a vegetable garden.
Artwork donations hang in the lobbies, meeting rooms, hallways outside the library and computer rooms, and dining room and serve as a topic of conversation among neighbors and an object of contemplation for individuals.

Grub Street

Grub Street’s mission is to be an innovative, rigorous, and welcoming community for writers who together create their best work, find audience, and elevate the literary arts for all. Since 1997 Grub Street has offered classes and services for writers at all stages of development and prides itself on welcoming as many writers as possible through generous scholarships and free programming.
Grub Street offers free monthly sessions to Boston-area teens as an answer to the limited arts programming in public schools. They offer a paid three-week Teen Summer Fellowship that teens from the Boston area apply to and can earn while they learn, and won’t miss their summer job income for that time span. Grub Street also welcomes other organizations working to advance literacy into their space; they are The Massachusetts Literary Education and Performance Collective and First Literacy.
As a creative center where students are constantly looking for inspiration, having original artwork is very exciting to them to helps cement their identity as a vital member of the Boston arts community. Art will hang in reception area, offices, and all five classrooms.
