Client: Center of Hope Community Church
Program Partners: Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS)
Project Type: Adaptive Reuse — 35,000 SF
The Hope Re-Entry Project will create a holistic community-of-care campus that seeks to break the barriers to re-entry that many men and women face as they get back on their feet. This “program-and-place” model will transform an old charter school and church parish hall to provide onsite access to job training, advanced education, social services, a well-designed place to live, and a spiritual home for 40 formerly incarcerated men. In addition, customized mobile rooms have been designed to maximize beds, provide workforce development opportunities through their fabrication, and provide a private comfortable space to rest and work.
