Wentworth Institute of Technology
The Brookview House provides a supportive environment for youth development, breaking cycles of homelessness, abuse, and poverty for women and families through student abilities and engagement to yield a lasting community relationship. However, the facilities and resources for the youth residing in the house are outdated and fail the need for cross-generational programming. The project involves renovations targeting flooring, walls and furnishings of the three-part space to facilitate a supportive, stable community for women and families to become self-sufficient.
