Capital Campaign






Changing Lives Building A Community Capital Campaign – Thank you for helping us complete our goal!

About the Campaign

It is our belief that every person, regardless of ability, should have the opportunity to wake up and have a productive, fulfilling day. We believe that barriers to integration in the community should be removed and opportunities for meaningful employment should be plentiful. The new Cardinal Cushing Centers MarketPlace Building moves us closer to realizing that vision. We are so pleased to report that as of December 2020, we have completed our campaign.
Thanks to your generosity and support we:

  • Completed our $10 million fundraising goal.
  • Construction is complete on our new, 20,000 square foot, sustainable MarketPlace Building and our retail shops are open to the public M-F from 10am to 2pm
  • Building is visible and accessible directly from Route 53
  • Opened three Retail Shops for job training and paid employment opportunities:
    – Cushing Café
    – Take 2
    – Unique Boutique
  • Have six state-of-the-art classrooms for job training
  • South Shore Community becomes a more inclusive place
  • We create a destination shopping experience for people of all abilities
Thank you in advance for your support.
