Expanding access to programs and services
Build a new outreach center in the West End and modify the current Liz Carter Outreach Center.
The new outreach center will be a 36,000-square-foot facility. Our waiting area, food pantry, pharmacy and social services will be significantly expanded, allowing us to offer these programs concurrently Monday – Saturday. The outreach center will also include a chapel, eye clinic, teaching kitchen and flexible space for additional programming.
Our neighbors will no longer have to endure worsening symptoms as they wait for our pharmacy to open or go to bed hungry as they wait for our pantry to open. With your help, our neighbors will receive the help they need, when they need it.
- Neighbors will not have to wait outside our building in long lines.
- Individuals with physical limitations will be able to navigate our building with safety and ease.
- Neighbors can more easily access food in their neighborhood through our food pantry’s expanded ability to support partner, church-based pantries across Hamilton County.
The Liz Carter Outreach Center will be modified to include room for large distributions and to expand the Ozanam Center for Service Learning.
- More individuals will have the opportunity to consider the root causes of poverty and potential solutions through poverty immersion and retreat experiences.
- Programs like the Fan and Air Conditioner Distribution, the Coat Drive and Angel Toy will be held on-site, reducing the transportation barrier many neighbors face and significantly improving organizational efficiency.
