Harvest House plans $3.7 million ‘one-stop’ facility for the underserved
The Harvest House Ministry Center today announced a $3.7 million project that will expand human services offered to needy individuals in underserved communities.
The faith-based center is moving forward with a long-planned conversion of a former truck dealership at 175 Jefferson Ave. near N. Division Street into a new site that will aim to be a one-stop resource for families in underserved neighborhoods.
The site will become the new location for the Baby and Children’s Ministry, which supplies families with free items such as cribs, high chairs and car seats.
Renovated space will also be used as satellite offices for various human services agencies. New classrooms will be built for the New Hope Education Center. In addition, the project will free up space to expand free clinics offered through Good Neighbors Health Care.
Harvest House received the 29,000-square-foot building — on the site of the 1983 propane explosion that killed seven — as a gift in 2003.
