Rowland Construction at Hathaway-Sycamores

Construction is underway at our El Nido campus in Altadena! Hathaway-Sycamores broke ground in May to expand the footprint of its longstanding Rowland Cottage, one of two cottages that are home to the youth we serve.

The updates to Rowland Cottage will allow us to add two more bedrooms as well as remodel current bedrooms and bathrooms to create more comfortable, private and safe spaces for the boys. The cottage will also include a modern kitchen, dining room and lounge. There will be a remodeled outdoor space next to the cottage with an entertainment area for BBQs along with a media center for playing video games and watching movies. When the updates are completed, Rowland Cottage will provide 20 foster youth with a nurturing place to reside as staff work to reunite them with family members or connect them to foster or adoptive families in the community.

The remodel has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Ahmanson Foundation, our board member Bradley Freer and his wife Lisa Freer, Gordon Crawford and family, and our support group Los Altos Auxilliary.  The first phase of the renovation is expected to be completed in the late Fall 2019.
