Although we have reached our goal of raising $3.6 million we, the delay in starting construction has caused costs to rise. Our aim is to completely remodel our current building into a community center and build a new social services next door with showers, laundry, a clothing bank and other services for the homeless. See a complete description of the remodel below.
Demolition of the old Milt’s Donuts building is scheduled for April, 2014. Construction of the new Birkenfeld Center/Sally’s Place should begin by June, 2014 and be completed within a year. Phase 2, the remodeling of the old building, should be completed by the end of 2015.
Although the entire project will take more than 11 years from the original concept to completion, many miracles have taken place in the interim, leading us to believe that this is all being accomplished in God’s time and with His blessing. Among the blessings have been the publishing of “Breakfast at Sally’s,” some completely unexpected financial gifts and many, many new supporters and awesome staff and Advisory Board members.
