The Main Street building is ready to open! All are invited to join the highly anticipated Virtual Ribbon Cutting on Thursday, July 30, from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. In recognition of this event, Montgomery County has proclaimed July 30 as “Main Street Connect’s Inclusivity Redefined Day“!
The Virtual Ribbon Cutting will include a video tour of the Main Street building and remarks from Jillian and Scott Copeland, Maryland officials and Main Street community members. Learn about the impact that Main Street has already had and all that is to come as we work to create a world where people of all abilities can thrive!

Sit back, dine in and celebrate with Main Street. Choose from a special Main Street selection offered by either Chef Geoff’s (order by July 27) or Buttercream & Burrata.
About Main Street
Society today overlooks and isolates adults with disabilities, leading to immense challenges for them and their families, as well as communities stripped of the richness and talents of these individuals. Main Street is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2017 to address this great need by creating dynamic opportunities through affordable, inclusive housing and community engagement so people of all abilities can live their best lives. In the last three years, Main Street has built a strong community of members, donors and friends who are committed to changing lives and changing mindsets through inclusion.
In October 2018, we held the groundbreaking celebration for Main Street’s flagship apartment building and community center at 50 Monroe Place in the heart of Rockville, Maryland. Now ready to open, the building will be the first of its kind in the Washington metropolitan area offering 70 apartments with 25% set aside for adults with varying disabilities and 75% designated as affordable. The 10,000-square-foot community center on the ground floor will provide dynamic social, educational and wellness-focused programming to people with and without disabilities including the building’s residents and others who join as members.
Join us on July 30 to celebrate this historic Virtual Ribbon Cutting and, if you haven’t already, we hope you will join the Main Street movement!
