Liberty Mutual Foundation has awarded the local nonprofit Rebuilding Together Boston a total of $75,000 in grants to serve homeowners and nonprofit community centers in Boston's Dorchester and Mattapan neighborhoods, according to a news release. Rebuilding Together Boston, which works to help preserve affordable housing, stabilize neighborhoods, and reduce housing instability, is using the funds to repair homes and revitalize community spaces.

To date, this funding ($40,000 for FY24 and FY25 in Dorchester, and $35,000 for FY23 and FY24 in Mattapan) has enabled Rebuilding Together Boston to revitalize the Gallivan Community Center and three homes in Mattapan. While in Dorchester, plans for the grant money include repairing the home of a young adult with learning challenges so he can live independently while being cared for by his mother.

One of the Dorchester homeowners that Rebuilding Together Boston plans to help in the coming year faces unique challenges. The homeowner is of Honduran descent and moved to the United States as a child and put herself through college. She adopted her son who has delayed developmental disabilities resulting from being exposed to substances before birth. His lessons in high school are training him to enter the workforce as an adult. However, he will require care for the rest of his life and will be unable to live independently. The homeowner would like to renovate the semi-finished basement into a room for her son. We also plan to upgrade a community garden on the same street. This work directly aligns with Liberty Mutual's focus on improving housing stability for youth, low-income families, and people with disabilities.
