The asphalt is gone. Just look at that beautiful lot waiting for a live-saving affordable housing building!

August 26, 2019: The building is gone!

The building is gone! Now it’s just an empty lot waiting for a beautiful building that will change lives. Once that last wall was removed, the construction crew found pieces of a sign that said Brother DePaul. What do you think the rest of the sign said?

August 22, 2019: Almost done!

Only one wall remains of the Finance and Commerce Building!

August 15, 2019: Demolition has started!

We are so excited that demolition has begun! It’s starting to feel real! Check out the images and videos from demolition day 1.

August 14, 2019: Equipment is here!

We just wanted to share this picture because we’re so excited about the progress! We’ll be sure to update (and maybe get a video) once demolition starts happening!

July 12, 2019: Closing!

Today we closed on the Finance and Commerce building. Now demolition and construction can finally begin. The staff that we in the office celebrated with sparkling cider.

Demolition will begin next week.

Expanding Hope for the Homeless

AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND HOPE

We have made exciting progress on our Park7 Project!

House of Charity has raised $11 million, enough funds to begin construction of the housing building in June of 2019.
With the October 2017 approval of $8 million in funds from the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency restricted to housing, we have the funds to build 61 studio apartments for people experiencing long-term homelessness, the foundation of our ambitious expansion.
We are thrilled to receive the full housing funding for construction of the first building of our new facilities! Because the funds were restricted to housing, we are taking some time to redesign the second phase which includes the Food Centre, outpatient addiction and mental health program, and new offices for our case managers and our administration.
