Pamela Sandler Completes Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program; Brings Special Needs Housing to Berkshire County

Pamela Sandler joins local small business owners to create new business opportunity in Berkshire County

Stockbridge, MA (June 12, 2017) – Pamela Sandler, founder of Pamela Sandler Architect, located in Stockbridge, MA, completed the 11 week, 100 plus hour Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, a national program created to help entrepreneurs develop jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital, and business support services. Ms. Sandler fine-tuned the firm’s business growth plan which, along with her residential and commercial full-service architecture, extends the firm’s reach by teaming with groups that develop appropriate housing for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and special needs adults in the northeast.

“Within seven years 500,000 ASD adults will require special needs housing. Currently, 80 percent of these adults live with their families,” noted Sandler. There are parental organizations, groups and governmental agencies that need expertise in the design and development of appropriate special needs housing. “My goal is to be able to answer the question so many parents with special needs children ask, ‘where will he or she live when I’m gone?’” continues Sandler.

Sandler, a mother of two ASD adults understands professionally as well as personally the residential requirements for special needs adults. “When designing full-time living spaces and communities there are considerations most firms would not naturally consider, such as creating visually calm living areas, sound proof rooms, spacious hallways as well as common areas that promote physical activity. The design should include appropriate ventilation and use all-green, non-toxic products. And of course, we need to create a sense of familiarity and security,” explains Sandler.

“The Goldman Sachs 10,000 small businesses program gave me the tools to learn more about the business side of my firm as well as support my passion to develop housing for ASD adults so that they can lead comfortable and productive adult lives.” Sandler continued, “I’m confident that the three months of work and networking will pay off for my firm’s residential and commercial projects as well benefit the special needs adults in the northeast.”

“We’re proud of our graduates of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative. These entrepreneurs put forth incredible effort to complete this program and we are confident their efforts will continue in growing their businesses. We are excited to watch their many successes,” said Kerry Healey, President of Babson College.
