Refuge Recovery Campus Construction Update

Hardesty Women's Renew Center Taking Shape!

UPDATE: APRIL 2022

The John 3:16 Mission Hardesty Women's Renew Center is taking shape (see picture below). You can definitely see the outline of the building as steel girders, cross beams and other elements have been installed over the past 6-8 weeks. 
Soon, work will begin on exterior walls and roofing to fully enclose the 11,500-square-foot building before moving on to the next phase of finishing the interior. 
The site is immediately adjacent to an existing 40,000-square-foot building that currently houses the Mission's administrative operations, as well as the women's recovery program and day program. Renovations on this building (formerly an elementary school) will commence this spring and continue for several months. When completed, it will serve as a residential recovery center for 80 homeless and at-risk men.
Following that, the Mission will construct a work training/administrative center and a distribution /donations processing building on the site. These are elements of the Mission’s $8.3 million Restore Capital Campaign that was completed last year.

When completed, up to 30 women and 80 men will be able to participate in life changing residential programs designed to get people off the streets forever so they can lead healthy, productive lives in our community!

Below is a picture of the current state of construction as of April 12. The illustration at top right is how the women's facility will look when completed later this year.

You Make the Difference!

It has only been through YOUR generous contributions and those of many other likeminded people that made this transformational project possible. We look forward to sharing with you the ongoing construction progress. John 3:16 Mission completed its $8.3 million RESTORE Capital Campaign in the Spring of 2021. 
Above is a rendering of the future Hardesty Renew Building (Women's Recovery Center) currently under construction. The Mission expects construction to be completed by late summer/fall of 2022 with the building to be occupied shortly after. Click HERE to see a Fox23 story about the project.
