Manna House is very excited to have launched a Capital Campaign that we fondly call “the Kitchen Campaign.” But it’s way more than that.
This campaign will expand capacity and create efficiency in serving our clients by renovating our existing facilities. The project includes an addition to the existing structure for a kitchen, cold storage, pantry, dishwashers and dry food storage in the new basement. The existing first floor will be renovated to increase our dinning capacity from 20 to 60 individuals and will include additional private spaces for case management along with new shower and restroom facilities. The new addition will include a covered client waiting area and a secure volunteer/employee entrance. Important repairs will be made to the existing structure.
The plan will also increase efficiency by creating a kitchen entrance for food delivery, updating the existing structure repairs and the façade will be renovated to fit with the new building.
While the bulk of this project is being funded by grants and trusts, others who have the means to donate, can do so here.
GOAL: $1.2 MILLION
AMOUNT RAISED SO FAR: $800K

We are excited for what the future holds with Manna house. In order to improve the essential services to our ever-increasing poor client population, we have a real need to fund continuing operations and make the request for that as opposed to capital.
Design and preliminary structural assessment is currently underway and we are awaiting final engineered drawings, which are almost complete. We expect to submit the Project for bids to a number of contractors by the spring 2018. We anticipate construction will commence in mid–2018 and will take approximately 12 months to complete. To date, we have received $400,000 with additional, firm pledges of $400,000. We are working to have commitments, if not receipts, for the balance of the project by mid-to-late 2018 to avoid having to seek financing from a financial institution.
