Have you heard us shouting it from the rooftops? Bread for the City will soon be breaking ground on our brand-new, 30,000-square-foot service center on Good Hope Road, SE!
Our current 9,000-square-foot Southeast Center has been operating at full capacity since 2002. We have tried not to let limited space stand in the way of serving our community, but we must do more to meet the increasing need. That is why this summer Bread for the City will break ground on our new center, with the goal of opening to the public in 2020.
At 30,000-square-feet, our new Southeast Center will be more than three times the size of our current facility—and we have plans to make use of every inch. This new facility will bring our health care services to Good Hope Road for the first time and will expand access to all of our programs–food, clothing, legal assistance, employment assistance, and social services–to 20,000 people through 75,000 visits each year.
We need every member of our community to come together to make this project a smashing success. For more information about the Building on Good Hope Project and how you can get involved, go to breadforthecity.org/goodhope. Build with us!
