The Kelsey’s co-founder and CEO, Micaela Connery, and Housing Development Manager, Katie McAuley, visited Martha’s Vineyard to host a series of community engagement events, culminating in a Disability-Forward Housing Convening. The Convening was hosted in partnership with Martha’s Vineyard Inclusive Communities (MVIC), a local group of resident advocates who are organizing for more inclusive housing developments. The MVIC and The Kelsey will continue their work together via a Technical Assistance contract to propose a gentle-density, mixed-income housing development on the island.
Four runners are taking on the New York City Marathon next weekend in honor of The Kelsey. These champions for inclusive housing have raised over $20,000 (and counting!) with their fundraising efforts in support of The Kelsey. Help them reach their $25,000 goal!
