MassDev Supports Casa Myrna

Casa Myrna

Boston – MassDevelopment has issued a $3,250,000 tax-exempt bond on behalf of Casa Myrna Vazquez, Inc., Boston’s largest provider of domestic and dating-violence awareness efforts and support for survivors.

Casa Myrna will use bond proceeds to buy and renovate the historic Rubina Ann Guscott building and an adjacent building in Dorchester’s Grove Hall neighborhood, which the organization will then use as its headquarters.

The buildings will include space for services, a youth-managed clothing boutique or café, offices, and public meeting rooms. Cambridge Trust Company purchased the bond, which MassDevelopment enhanced with a guarantee.
