CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

NorthStar is building a state-of-the-art Early Education & Community Center in the south end of New Bedford.
Our new Early Education & Community Center will:

  • Expand full-time enrollment by 40%, serving an additional 40 children and families;
  • Serve as a regional laboratory school for best practices and professional development for the entire SouthCoast;
  • Consolidate our current two sites into one, improve operational and financial efficiencies; and,
  • Provide the community with access to playspaces, community rooms, and our commercial kitchen, all while simultaneously addressing urban blight.

Join us in investing in our children, our community, and our future!
