About Justin Sallaway and The Price Center
Newton Rotary Club President Justin Sallaway has served as president of The Price Center since 2004. For more than thirty years, people with disabilities and their families from throughout the Greater Boston area have relied on The Price Center for residential, day habilitation and employment programs that foster clients’ self-confidence and maximize their physical, emotional and intellectual capabilities.
