Construction has begun!

| Campaign, News

The new construction phase of Groundworks’ capital project began on May 6, 2020 after the Governor’s stay-at-home restrictions were relaxed to allow a few construction workers on site.  As the delayed construction start has shifted the project’s overall timeline, we are unsure when to expect to open the new building.  We will post updates here as new information becomes available.

The final phase of this project will be the renovation of 60 South Main Street—our existing Drop-In Center—for which we continue to raise funds.

Huge thanks to all of the funders making this project possible and to everyone in our generous Groundworks donor family for contributing over $1.5 million in funds raised to date through our Capital Campaign!
