Office Recovery Fund

In March 2014 a fire broke out in the apartment directly above our school at 72 Warren Street. It triggered the fire sprinklers and flooded all of the floors below, including our administrative offices and performance space! Luckily no one was hurt in the fire and most of our classroom space was spared. However, parts of our school sustained significant water damage and must be completely renovated before we can inhabit them again.

Good news:
We have insurance!

Bad news:
Parts of our school are unusable and insurance will only cover a portion of what was destroyed.

Please show your support by donating to our Indiegogo crowd funding campaign, or by spreading the word that Church Street School needs your help!
