MassDev Helps Open Day Program

Venture Community Services

Uxbridge, MA – MassDevelopment has issued a $1,550,000 tax-exempt bond for Venture Community Services, a nonprofit in Worcester County that provides advocacy and support to individuals with disabilities and their families.

The organization used bond proceeds to renovate, furnish, and equip a day program facility at 670 Douglas Street in Uxbridge. The facility will support young adults with developmental disabilities, and staff will use the space to develop autism services for children and families.

TD Bank N.A. purchased the bond.

“MassDevelopment is a proud supporter of the Commonwealth’s human services nonprofits, which provide high-quality services and programs for individuals and families across Massachusetts,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss. “We are so pleased to issue this financing to help Venture Community Services continue providing the compassionate, individualized care for which it is known.”

Venture Community Services, founded in 1975, provides support to individuals with developmental disabilities through innovative practices that encourage independence, empowerment, and opportunity.
