My Sisters’ Place, which aids victims of domestic violence and human trafficking, gave its Dream Maker Award this year to L+ M Development Partners, a developer of affordable housing and mixed use complexes.
The company’s co-founder and CEO Ron Moelis accepted the award at a recent fundraiser gala and was honored for his part in assisting the construction of a new emergency shelter for victims of abuse.
My Sisters’ Place has been serving Westchester County for the past 37 years. Services include two confidential emergency shelters, a 24/7 crisis hotline, one-on-one counseling and legal services, family support programs and an education and training center.
Moelis is a founding member of the New York State Association for Affordable Housing and is an advisory board member of the New York City Housing Partnership. A local L+M Development project is the mixed commercial and residential building, Warburton Lofts in downtown Yonkers and the company manages two apartment complexes in Rockland County for senior citizens.
In addition to honoring L + M Development Partners with the Dream Maker Award, My Sisters’ Place also recognized Hunter Roberts Construction Group with the Voices of Change Award and Nancy F. Levin with the Special Appreciation Award for their help, guidance and dedication to the construction of the new emergency residential home.
In 1977 My Sisters’ Place, originally the Yonkers’ Women’s Task force, opened its first safe home, and currently offers 38 beds in the Westchester for individuals and families in crisis.
