Mamie D. Lee School
LIIF provided Briya Public Charter School and Bridges Public Charter School with a $2 million construction loan for the renovation and expansion of the Mamie D. Lee School. The new 80,600 square feet site will co-locate community services that will enhance life opportunities for families in Ward 5 of Washington, D.C.
Briya, an adult and early childhood education charter school, will use the site to expand its adult programming and add 100 slots for infant to pre-K care and education. The group will also provide certificate career training for licensed child care providers and medical assistants. Bridges will consolidate its preschool and elementary school classes on the new site. This will enable Bridges to grow by 96 seats and serve Pre-K through 5th grades, including 25-40% special needs children. In addition, Mary’s Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center, will lease space to provide access to health and dental care, mental health services and early intervention for infants and toddlers with disabilities to the community.
