Local Street to Honor SSJ

May 5, 2021

A soon to be street in North Chili will honor Sister Rosemary Mackie and her community work with Bishop Sheen Ecumenical Housing Foundation. Mackie Lane will be part of a new housing project (72 units), co-developed by Sheen Housing called Hubbard Springs Apartments.

Sheen Housing applied for and got approval from Monroe County to give the street its special name earlier this year. “Our Board of Directors thought it only fitting to honor Sister Rosemary for her years of dedication and support of seniors,” says Allynn Smith, Executive Director for Sheen Housing.

Sister Rosemary, a rehabilitation specialist for Sheen Housing, is the not-for-profit’s longest serving employee at 34 years. Sheen Housing provides safe and affordable housing for very low to moderate income families, seniors, veterans, and persons living with disabilities. Smith credits Sister Rosemary’s expertise for playing an important role in the organization’s successful outreach. “We applaud Sister Rosemary for her compassion, commitment, and service for those most vulnerable in our community.”

Mackie Lane and the new housing development will open in March of 2022.
