New Brookside Apartments Partners With Community Lodgings

New Brookside Apartments has collaborated with Community Lodgings bringing the Youth Education Program on site.  The new Community Lodgings facility is now located at New Brookside and programs are being offered to residents of the building as well as children in the surrounding area.

Community Lodgings provides children and parents with an educational foundation for success.  The award winning Youth Education Program allows Elementary, Middle and High School students to attend free daily afterschool programs and summer camps, meet with tutors and mentors, learn valuable life skills and participate in various enrichment and recreation activities.  Staff and volunteers help children build computer skills, organize field trips and weekly exercise programs, as well as promote healthy attitudes that will stay with them throughout their lives.

“We believe these education programs are an asset to the New Brookside Community,” says John K. Freeman, Owner of New Brookside Apartments.  “We are pleased to have Community Lodgings as our partner in this endeavor.

The mission of Community Lodgings is to lift families from homelessness and instability to independence and self-sufficiency through Transition Housing, Affordable Housing and Youth Education Programs.  On average, children receive 350 hours of academic and general support each year.  They serve more than 150 individuals each week in the Arlandria-Chirilagua neighborhood and beyond.

"Every child deserves the best start in life, for a community to be whole and healthy, we need to join with others to provide opportunities to build a better life," says Lynn Thomas, Executive Director of Community Lodgings.

A high rise building with 165 units, New Brookside offers its residents a convenient lifestyle with walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and public transportation.  Choose an Efficiency, One, Two or Three bedroom apartment and gain easy access to Crystal City, Del Ray, Old Towne Alexandria and Washington, DC.  Newly renovated kitchens, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors available with all utilities included.
