BOSTON, Mass. (April 17, 2014) – The Elizabeth Stone House in Roxbury has appointed Eric Peterson, who lives in Boston’s South End, to its board of directors.  The Elizabeth Stone House provides residential and community-based services to families affected by domestic violence, substance abuse, mental health issues and homelessness.

Peterson is a senior project architect with over 30 years of experience in the profession and over 25 years with Massachusetts architectural registration.  He specializes in office, high-technology, institutional and multi-family residential facilities.
 
“My wife Laura and I first donated to the Elizabeth Stone House over twenty years ago at the suggestion of a close friend who worked on a crisis hotline,” said Eric Peterson.  “One thing that caught our attention at the time was the importance the organization placed on serving not only women but their children.   Over the years, as we learned more about the important work performed by the staff and volunteers, we have tried to help as much as we can.  I hope that as an architect I can bring a valuable perspective to the board as it confronts the exciting but serious challenge of designing, funding and constructing a new building for the Elizabeth Stone House.”

“We are thrilled that Eric has agreed to join our board of directors,” said Nancy Owens Hess, Executive Director, The Elizabeth Stone House.  “As a long-time supporter, Eric understands our mission and his experience as an architect will be invaluable as we start the process of building a new Elizabeth Stone House to better serve the community.”

Peterson has a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, both from the University of Michigan, College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
