Ready, Willing & Working and Partners Submit Proposal for Historic Gales School

On March 26, 2010, Ready, Willing & Working, Inc. and The Doe Fund, Inc., in partnership with Building Partnerships, submitted a proposal to the District of Columbia for the lease, renovation and operation of a homeless shelter at The Gales School, 65 Massachusetts Avenue, NE.

If selected the dilapidated historic Gales School will be renovated to to the highest standards, and would be called the “Gales School Center for Opportunity.”

Ready, Willing & Working currently serves 20 homeless and formerly incarcerated individuals providing them with work opportunities and supportive services. Housed in the “Gales School Center for Opportunity” the program would be able to serve a greater number of individuals with a proven solution to ending homelessness and criminal recidivism.
