• Domus receives $5.8M State bonding grant for capital improvements!

    IMG_4172We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to State Senator Carlo Leone and Governor Dan Malloy, Domus was just awarded $5.825 million for improvements and upgrades at our 83 Lockwood Avenue site in Stamford! The nearly $6M will pay for significant energy efficiency, security, and safety upgrades in classrooms, the gym, kitchen, auditorium, bathrooms, and more. The building was first constructed in 1961, and the last addition was put on decades ago, so the upgrades are sorely needed. We're so excited to continue making this building a hub for the East Side and a place where youth feel safe and loved. Now we just need the money to pay for all the programs we're dreaming of! MANY THANKS to Senator Leone and Governor Malloy!
