Refuge Recovery Campus Construction Update

Putting the Final Touches on Hardesty Women's Building


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 end of the year is coming soon and so is the end of construction on the Hardesty Women’s Renew Building at John 3:16 Mission.
Virtually all exterior and interior work is completed and the furniture will soon be installed in the facility. Upon the delivery and installation of some electrical equipment, the building will be ready for occupation. The Mission expects this to happen in January!
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 completed, crews have been installing plumbing, electrical and 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 end of 2022 to early 2023 with the building to be occupied shortly after. Click HERE to see a Fox23 story about the project.
