Refuge Recovery Campus Construction Update

Much Interior Work Being Done This Summer


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!

The heat is on, but construction of the John 3:16 Mission Hardesty Women's Renew Center continues (see picture below).Most of last month's work has been on the interior of the structure and has included insulation, electrical, framing and floor polishing.
The 11,500-square-foot building 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 and day programs. This building, once renovated, will house the Men's Recovery Center (for homeless and at-risk men).
Men's Recovery Center Interior Work Underway
With interior demolition work largely completed, crews began prepping areas and pouring concrete for new bathrooms and showers. When completed, this 40,000-square-foot building will serve as a residential recovery center with beds and program space up to 80 homeless and at-risk men.
Following these projects, 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 Restore Capital Campaign that was completed in 2021.

Below is a picture of the current state of construction. 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.
