We are excited to welcome the Roslindale District Office of Roxbury YouthWorks to the neighborhood!  

Roxbury YouthWorks is a community-based non-profit organization whose mission is to help youth caught in cycles of poverty, victimization, and violence to transition successfully to adulthood. They will  be opening their Roslindale District Office at 4262-4264 Washington Street (where Harrison Refrigeration and Big Spin Laundromat used to be), and plan to open in mid-August. 

Mia Alvarado, the Executive Director and longtime Roslindale resident, stated that this office will house administrative staff and caseworkers (adding more foot traffic and a lunch crowd). "We spent a lot of time seeking out a new space and are excited to be in Roslindale! We chose Roslindale because there is excellent access to public transportation and the resident and business community is known to be welcoming here. When we have staff events, we look forward to supporting local businesses for catering and more. Roxbury YouthWorks is excited to be part of the Roslindale business community!" 

If you are looking for Harrison Refrigeration, please visit their temporary location at 63 Poplar Street (next to the Treasure Chest). They are planning a big move (still in Roslindale) soon, but will be in this space for now if you need to visit our favorite appliance store.
