•Repair and renovate the 40-year-old shelter

Full inspections were completed of the facility. Findings pointed to comprehensive structural repair work necessary to continue to provide a safe living environment for the residents of the shelter. Significant renovations are necessary to ensure the residents have a comfortable home to live in while working through one of the most difficult times in their lives. Requests for proposals have been received from GCs for full repairs and renovations to the facility. Work includes gutting all bathrooms and kitchens to replace piping that has caused water leaks in the walls and floors, replacing all dry wall, framing, cabinets, sinks, showers, flooring, and counter tops. Air handlers and compressors will be replaced correcting improper heating and cooling throughout the units causing condensation and dry wall degradation. Proper insulation will be installed to ensure energy efficiency throughout. The roof will be repaired.

How will the 250K be Used?
