The Conway Center
The Conway Center, named in honor of Joanne Conway and William E. Conway, Jr., will be owned and operated by So Others Might Eat (SOME), a non-profit service provider with over 40 years of experience working with homeless and at-risk families, providing them with food, clothing, housing, job training and addiction treatment. The project, slated for completion in the spring of 2018 and located adjacent to a mass transit hub, will have diverse positive impacts on a community that is a federally designated medically underserved area with a 26% poverty rate and family income that is just 35% of the area median.
The project will offer:
- A 37,000 square foot, state of the art federally qualified health care center operated by Unity Health Care. The new facility will replace an existing 5,400 square feet facility located across the street, and will generate 20 new jobs and provide 12,900 patients annually with a host of services, including pediatric care, obstetric and gynecological services, nutrition counseling, mental health and substance abuse services, HIV treatment and dental care.
- A full service pharmacy.
- 182 units of affordable supportive housing, and an additional 20 units of transitional housing.
- Office and program space for So Others Might Eat, including a Center for Employment and Training (CET) that will prepare individuals for living wage careers through hard and soft skills training, adult basic education and career development.
- Direct access to public transportation.
