With showers, our day center will truly be a one-stop experience for homeless women to meet their essential needs. To date, we have reached the 50% mark ($115,000 of the $230,000 total cost) for adding two accessible showers, an accessible sink and toilet, and remodeling an adjacent space to accommodate a wellness station equipped for health and wellness consultations, a classroom, centralized free computer access, care team office and two small administrative office spaces.
John Adams of Adams Architecture, offered his design services pro bono to the project. Additionally, our project manager, Darel Grothaus, provides his services at a fraction of his market rate fees, and bids for services include discounts by Mark Larson Construction, Northstar Electrical, Fischer Plumbing, University Mechanical and Tri-Tec Communications. We are indeed grateful for the efforts of the community village that surrounds us.
We are equally grateful to donors who have invested thus far in the project, including Charis Family Foundation, University Rotary, Pride Foundation, Chamberlain Family Fund, Charlie Spaeth and Glaser Foundation.
