Boston – Callahan Construction Managers volunteered at Rosie’s Place in Boston on March 5, marking the sixth consecutive year that Callahan has partnered with the women’s shelter.

During volunteer day, 12 employees prepared and served meals to 131 women and children. This will be the first of four visits scheduled for the year.

Rosie’s Place is one of the many organizations where Callahan volunteers both time and resources, as part of its Constructing Communities program. The program is designed to support the local communities where Callahan works, offering outreach through volunteerism, the hiring of local subcontractors, and the purchase of local goods.

Pat Callahan, president of the firm, says, “As a family-owned business, we take pride in supporting families in need, particularly in the local communities where we work and live. Rosie’s Place does an incredible job of uplifting women and children, which is why we collaborate with the organization year after year.”

Founded in 1974, Rosie’s Place was the first women’s shelter in the United States. The organization provides meals, shelter and wide-ranging support services. Rosie’s Place aims to maintain the dignity of women in the Boston area by providing a safe, nurturing environment to help them find security and seek opportunity in their lives.
