About This Project


Starting Points of Hudson County retained Build with Purpose’s services after learning in February 2013 that it would need to relocate for September 2013. BwP helped Starting Points quickly secure a 25-year lease with Our Lady of Mercy for its former school. The building required only minor capital improvements, a crucial fact given that the building needed to be occupied within six months. The first phase of the project consisted of the work necessary to get the facility opened, including emergency and accessibility improvements and the installation of playground equipment. Now that Starting Points has reopened in its new location, a second phase, including adding an elevator, HVAC system, and new windows, can commence.
