Grace Place board and donors, community members, Collier County Sherriff, and the DeAngelis Diamond team gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Grace Place for Children and Families Campus with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Situated at 4300 21st Avenue SW, this nonprofit has the goal to provide pathways out of poverty by educating children and families, while putting faith into action.
In an effort to break the cycle of poverty, Grace Place delivers educational programs to low-income families living in Golden Gate, a community with a higher poverty rate, lower earnings, lower family income and higher rates of unemployment than the rest of the state of Florida.
“As a builder in town, it is not lost on me on how integral it is to have the right builder as part of your team in order to make this successful,” says Grace Place Board Chair, Mario Valle.
DeAngelis Diamond completed several projects for Grace Place’s 4-acre campus, including several classrooms for children and adults, administrative offices, conference rooms, a multipurpose building and several large multi-use rooms, in addition to a basketball gym and several campus improvements such as parking lots and landscaping.
DeAngelis Diamond’s motto is “Honor to Build” and it is has been an honor to have built for and worked with Grace Place through the years, and to have been a part in developing the campus that will benefit families in our community and impact generations to come.
In addition to Grace Place, DeAngelis Diamond has built for numerous nonprofit organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, Naples Children and Education Foundation, Salvation Army, St. Matthew’s House, Neighborhood Health Clinic, and Jewish Federation of Greater Naples.
