Uxbridge nonprofit facility receives $1.5M bond

Venture Community Services' Uxbridge facility.

Thanks to a $1.5-million tax-exempt bond from MassDevelopment, Sturbridge nonprofit advocacy group Venture Community Services has opened a facility in Uxbridge.

The facility, which opened in September, will support young adults with developmental disabilities and develop autism services for children and their families. The $1.5-million bond was used to renovate, furnish and equip the day program facility at 670 Douglas St.

"MassDevelopment is a proud supporter of the commonwealth's human services nonprofits, which provide high-quality services and programs for individuals and families across Massachusetts," said MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss. "We are so pleased to issue this financing to help Venture Community Services continue providing the compassionate, individualized care for which it is known."

Venture Community Services, founded in 1975, operates four locations throughout Worcester County.

According to the Worcester County Registry of Deeds, the company purchased the 18,000-square-foot building in Uxbridge on 3.4 acres for $970,000 in February 2016.
