St. Joseph School 

Creating an Old North End Community Center 

St. Joseph School was built in 1929 to serve generations of neighbors. With lofty ceilings, expansive windows, hardwood floors, gym with a balcony, full stage with lighting and curtains, a professional kitchen, and open meeting space, St. Joseph School is a welcoming, and very busy, place. Today it needs a great deal of updating, from safety to comfort, but it is a solid building with character, deserving restoration.

The Champlain Housing Trust bought the building and has undertaken a significant $8.8 million renovation project to create the new center for its nonprofit and public uses. 

UPDATE [June 24] We’ve raised all but $200,000 $34,868 of our $8.8 million goal -- please give generously to help us meet our goal and transform this building into a fully functioning community asset.
