Project Description

Acquisition and adaptation of a former nursing home for use as a multi-purpose social service agency and transitional/treatment housing. Bridgeport Rescue Mission was founded in 1993 by a couple distributing meals from the back of their station wagon, and soon expanded into an old recreational vehicle with a mobile kitchen. The organization has since grown to offer shelter and supportive services to those in need, operating three facilities that host over 100 people each night. This Community Care Center project is the acquisition of a new site for expansion and consolidation of the mission’s services. Construction at the new site will include rehabilitating and adapting a former nursing facility with a focus on residential recovery for men, women, and children. The completed 60,599 sq. ft. center will have 150 beds, commercial kitchen, communal dining facilities and food court, office and administrative space, a mercantile area with a grocery and clothing store, classroom space, and a clinic. Services offered to residents will include case management, addiction recovery, employment training, counseling, housing referrals, clothing distribution, meals, and a food pantry.
