Giving New Life To Our Building

Giving New Life To Our Building

New Path

We’ve embarked on a step-by-step journey to move New Life Center from a one-dimensional organization offering shelter and basic services into a multi-faceted emergency, crisis and life-transformation center.

Transformation

The number of people who need our support has grown exponentially over the years, and their struggles have become increasingly complex. To achieve lasting impacts for people and our communities, we need to address intertwined issues at deeper levels. To do it, we need to enhance the New Life Center facilities and programs.

The Challenge

  • Facility is nearly 50 years old
  • 100% increase in demand over the past six years
  • Program advancement is hindered by lack of space and facility configuration
  • Desperate need for medical respite care for homeless

Building Transformed

Construction is moving along nicely at the New Life Center. The timeline is showing that we are getting close to completion of Phase 2 of our remodel project and will transition to Phase 3 in mid-May. The new kitchen, dining room, community & rec. rooms are completed. Areas of focus at this time are our new Case Management area (which was the old Thrift Store location) and the basement (old dining room/kitchen/ community room which you will see gutted out in the images included) that will now be the new location for our Harbor Program dorms and classrooms. We are anticipating that the new case management area will be completed in the first part of May and our basement in mid-June.
