What This Project Has Done

  • Restored the historic North Room.
  • Added a fresh, attractive exterior design befitting "Old Florida" including a new roof and porch style entryway/drop-off.
  • Redesigned interior space for a more open, flexible floor plan.
  • Redesigned the existing kitchen and restrooms to be larger, with modern fixtures and equipment.
  • Added a new conference room for smaller meetings.
  • Redesigned office space and storage areas for more flexibility.
  • Updated audio, video, internet, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems to efficient and effective modern standards.
  • Revamped parking lot to add space and fit with new landscaping.

However, we are still raising funds to help cover the unforeseen costs of the project, beyond our contingency. Fundraising will help defray these additional costs on the House. We are a 501(c)3 registered non-profit and survive on the generosity of our community. We exist for and by your efforts! Thank you!
