After a nearly two-year renovation project, Familylinks leadership cut the ribbon marking the official opening of our new administrative offices in East Liberty. The new office at 401 N. Highland Avenue will allow Familylinks to better serve clients across western Pennsylvania.
“This open house was the culmination of months of preparation and hard work, and we could not be more pleased with the results,” said Familylinks CEO Frederick A. Massey, Jr. “We were delighted to welcome all the donors, Foundations, dignitaries, and stakeholders who made this renovation possible.”
Massey and Familylinks Board of Directors Chair Arita Gilliam Rue were joined by state Sen. Jay Costa and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto at the Dec. 7 event.
Familylinks bought the 160-year old mansion as part of its 2014 acquisition of Vintage Senior Services. The building sits adjacent to Vintage’s current home, but was underutilized, and the organization took the opportunity to turn it into much-needed office space.
Future plans include renovations to Familylinks’ Banksville Road and Shady Avenue locations to grow our services, which include expanding drug and alcohol counseling.
