Women’s Mission Renewal Project

Building Project beginning in 2020

Every month we see new women seeking help at our shelter, but we also have an ongoing waiting list. Almost all of the women have been victims of abuse, but with the help of our staff, they leave with a new relationship with God and a promising future.

We have begun raising funds to expand our Women’s Shelter from the present capacity of 10 to accommodate 50+ women and children. We are replacing our old, worn out buildings with a new 18,000 square feet building. This project is estimated to cost $3.2 million. We were blessed with an $800,000 estate gift and a $1.5 million grant from Federal Home Loan Bank. In addition to those amounts, we will still need to raise another $1 million.

After funding is secured, the Transitional Living building will be demolished and the new Women’s Shelter will be built on that footprint. Once the new shelter is completed, the women and children will be relocated into that facility and then the Main Shelter will be demolished, followed by creating the outdoor improvements. We envision the entire project being completed by fall 2021.

October 2019 Update: We are excited to announce that we received a $1.5 million grant from Federal Home Loan Bank for this project! We still need your help to raise the remainder of the funds. Please donate today.
